CN Tower closed, Rogers centre roof leaks due to falling ice

The CN Tower was closed several hours before the game was postponed, as what the Toronto Star described as "watermelon-sized chunks of ice" fell just outside the nearby Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

On Monday morning, it didn't seem like the night's game between the Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays was in danger of being postponed.

Toronto and Kansas City will have a doubleheader tomorrow to make up for Mother Nature imposing her will and forcing the Blue Jays to deal with some bad karma quickly after their Twitter accounts lame troll backfired.

No injuries have been reported.

WATCH: Torontonians have been warned to avoid the area around the CN Tower as ice has been seen falling from the structure. The closure was expanded by police just after 3 p.m.to include the sidewalk on the south side of Front Street, which is closed from John Street to Blue Jays Way.

A weekend ice storm resulted in power outages, canceled flights and road collisions across Ontario. Monday's games between the Orioles-Red Sox and Cardinals-Cubs were also postponed, bringing MLB's season total to 24 so far. The Blue Jays' series opener against the Royals on April 12, 2001, had to be rescheduled after metal fragments fell onto the field during a routine test of the stadium's roof.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
