The source of a large ball of ice that fell from the sky recently, leaving a gaping hole in the roof of a Moxee, Washington home is being looked into by authorities.

While eating dinner at their home on Tuesday, Dwaine Morrison’s teenage son and daughter were stunned to a hear a loud bang. A chunk of ice measuring 1 foot by 1 foot and weighing 8 pounds, had crashed through the family’s roof and attic, breaking through drywall and pink insulation, and finally had landed in a walk-in closet.

No one in the house was hurt and the pictures of the mess were texted when the children went upstairs.

“This thing had to be bowling-ball to volleyball size. It had some velocity to it. It came from high up”, Morrison told ABC News today.

The Federal Aviation Administration(FAA) said it was investigating what flights might have been overhead at the time the block of ice fell.

As the family awaited news from the FAA and their insurance company, the hole in the Morrisons’ roof was patched up. Morrison said the family was storing the ice in a freezer in their garage.

A similar incident occurred in St. Laurent, Quebec, where the residents were reeling after the wheel of a jet fell from the sky and ripped through their roof in the wee hours of Wednesday.

“The renter of the third-floor apartment was not there at the time a plane tire crashed into the house”, said the homeowner who did not want to be identified.

According to the Transportation Safety Board of Canada, the tire belonged to a Falcon 10 corporate jet aircraft, which landed safely nearby at Pierre Elliot Trudeau Airport shortly after the incident.
