Blue Jays-Ice Storm,1st Ld-Writethru

A man crosses an ice laden street as a slow moving ice storm continues to batter southern Ontario for a second day

A man walks by the Rogers Centre as reports of falling ice from the CN Tower sparked a closure of parts of the area on Toronto on Monday, April 16, 2018.

"Fortunately there's been no injuries reported", said Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook. 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.

If the team thought they'd get a break by starting a series at the indoor Rogers Center in Toronto, those dreams were dashed Monday.

"It's hard to describe, it was really loud", Miller said.

Falling ice also made for a scary arrival in Toronto for the Royals, who flew in from Kansas City late Sunday after their game against the Los Angeles Angels was among those postponed.

The Blue Jays took the lead with a three-run fifth inning and added six in the sixth after the Royals led 3-2 on consecutive solo homers by Mike Moustakas and Lucas Duda in the third.

Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run home run in the first to give the Blue Jays an early 2-0 lead and finished the first game 2-for-3 with four runs-batted in.

Since then she's seen more than a dozen specialists and had countless medical procedures. "Of course, I'll veto it", Trump said. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) to make good on a statement the latter made during a CNN interview with Jake Tapper in December.

And I guess the only way to fix the hole is by physically going up on the roof.

Tarps had to be laid down in the outfield due to leaking.

"There has been ice coming from the CN Tower before and damaging the roof's membrane", he said.

If the double-header against the Royals is played, the second game will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game, which is set to begin at 3:07 p.m. ET. Toronto's series in Cleveland over the weekend was rained out, which makes the third consecutive game postponed due to weather conditions. There will be a doubleheader on Tuesday.

Fans with tickets to Monday's cancelled game are being offered an exchange for tickets to Tuesday's afternoon game or several other games scheduled in May and September.

When the Blue Jays first unveiled the Rogers Centre (then the Skydome) back in 1989, no one could have anticipated a day like Monday; when conditions outdoors would prevent teams from taking the field in a domed stadium. Authorities say no injuries have been reported, but several windows in nearby office buildings were smashed and at least one auto was struck.

Police say they are continuing to monitor the situation.
