Quoting minnesotamom:
I'm sorry---I'm not understanding why this is done? We have ice several feet thick on our rivers every winter but have never heard of this. What does it accomplish? It's the melting snow water from the surrounding countryside that flows down into the rivers and causes flooding, not the ice......


An ice jam that has formed in January in some places crushed ice until the bottom of river. There is hope that ice blasting will help to clear the way for flood waters.
