The CN Tower is currently closed due to extreme weather, after numerous reports of chunks of ice falling off of the tower and endangering buildings and passengers below.

Toronto Police have warned that falling ice has also caused the pedestrian bridge at John Street to close.


Since this morning, falling ice has caused damage to surrounding buildings and cars, however, police have yet to confirm the full extent of damages.

There have also been no injuries reported yet.

Pedestrians are being advised to avoid the CN Tower and the surrounding areas.

As for tonight’s Jay’s game against the Kansas City Royals, the Toronto Blue Jays are currently working with CN Tower and Toronto Police Service to assess the conditions around Rogers Centre.
