BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The strong winds broke part of the ice boom.

A spokesperson with the New York Power Authority says despite that, the ice is still holding, and the boom is working as designed.

The Power Authority is monitoring the situation, and is on site to repair the damages since the wind died down. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
