An island on the loose

One Saturday evening, an island appeared in Andrew Renna's back garden, in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA. According to Pam Belluck in the New York Times, "The island, about the size of a football field, made a beeline for Mr. Renna's house - crushing his three-foot chain-link fence, swamping his red-blue-and-purple flagstone patio, wrecking his dock, flooding his shed, hobbling his weeping willow, and drowning the oregano, cilantro, tomatoes and peppers in his garden."
