March 1, 2012 — Strong winds on Thursday caused ice to dislodge from the top of the CN Tower, hitting vehicles parked below and prompting memories of a similar incident that took place five years ago.

Calls began flooding into Toronto police just before 11:30 a.m about chunks of ice falling from the top of the CN Tower. No injuries have been reported but officials were dispatched to survey the scene and consult with engineers about possible safety precautions.

On March 1, 2007, streets surrounding the CN Tower and portions of the Gardiner Expressway were shut down after sheets of ice fell from the CN Tower and nearby high-rise buildings, causing a traffic slowdown during the morning and evening commutes.
