Toronto worried about ice falling from condo buildings

Ice from this past weekend's storm has left Toronto battered and now there's concern that ice falling off condo buildings could prove hazardous to anyone walking below.

As temperatures hover just above the freezing mark, some people are worried about the sharp icicles and large sheets of ice teetering off many of the city's condo buildings.

Reddit user PDNiaWdkaWNr posted a video of a sheet of ice slowing peeling off a window and falling into the depths below with the warning "Be careful outside, ice pieces are falling [off] buildings."

Many have begun cautioning others to watch where they're going while the ice begins to melt and fall away. 

Some are just downright frightened.

The city has issued a message that cleanup efforts are currently underway to improve street-level conditions, but it's still worth watching where you're going for the next while.
