Monday's Royals game in doubt due to Toronto ice

CN Tower closed after reports of chunks of ice falling, Rogers Centre roof leaking

The ice storm that has been ravaging the city of Toronto for the past three days has forced the CN Tower to close on Monday and has now put the Toronto Blue Jays game against the Kansas City Royals at the Rogers Centre in jeopardy.

Pedestrians are being advised to avoid the area, as a combination of rain and warming temperatures continues to dislodge ice, sending it crashing to the ground.

Security is now taping off areas and putting up barricades on the south side of the tower, she said.

There's been an incredible wave of postponements thanks to weather across Major League Baseball this year, with 22 through Sunday (the second-most MLB has had through April since 2000, with the month only half-over), and so the San Diego Padres chose to show off their good weather Sunday and declare that their game would be on.

Ice damage has been observed on several buildings in the area.

There have been no injuries reported yet.

The Jays are working with the CN Tower and Toronto Police Services to review the possibility of playing tonight's game.

Among them: a hole in the retractable roof of the Rogers Centre, where the Blue Jays play. They're expected to provide an update shortly.

As of Monday, freezing rain transitioned over from freezing to regular rain, which created travel issued during the Monday morning commute.
