Falling ice forces closure of CN Tower, Toronto Blue Jays game in jeopardy

Imagine reporting to work at Rogers Centre in Toronto and being told that your boss needs you to go on the roof to assess damage ... during an ice storm.

It was the first time a game has been postponed at the domed stadium since a Jays-Royals contest was deferred April 12, 2001.

The game will be made up Tuesday afternoon as part of a traditional doubleheader, the Blue Jays announced late Monday afternoon.

Well, that tweet didn't age well, and it was actually deleted shortly after their roof was pierced by ice from the CN Tower. After all, Rogers Centre has a retractable dome that comes in handy on days like Monday - when it's cold and raining and feels nothing like mid-April.

The closure around the CN Tower has been expanded and includes the sidewalk on the south side of Front Street, which is closed from John Street to Blue Jays Way.

Trump says Comey and McCabe 'committed many crimes'
That's because, he says in the interview , the U.S. leader puts personal loyalty and his family above the interests of the state. Because of that Comey said he believed it "was important that we try to understand [the dossier], and see what could we verify".

The Blue Jays tweeted that they are investigating whether to postpone Monday's game.

There have been no injuries reported yet.

A weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and road collisions across Ontario.

The Blue Jays have tarps set in right field to trap the incoming snow and ice, but the police will have to deem the area safe if ice large enough to break the Rogers Centre's roof is falling from the CN Tower.
