Lake Michigan Shoreline Takes A Beating
Strong waves that reached 10 feet tall bashed into the Lake Michigan shoreline this week, eating away at beaches and taking out some roads.
Some areas including Mackinac Island took a hit from the strong waves. According to MLive, M-185, the road around Mackinac Island had parts washed out, it got so bad that 3 miles of the roadway had to be closed down.
The 8 mile state highway is a tourist favorite with stops along the route that includes the islands downtown, British Landing, and Arch Rock just to name a few.
Gale warnings on the Great Lakes continued this week as high winds and big waves continued to lash out at Michigan' coastline. Beach erosion, some dune loss and bluff collapses all were forecast with this fall storm.
One of the interesting things to see this week was the surfers out on Lake Michigan. At least someone got to enjoy the huge waves.
