Frozen Lake Michigan has Shattered into Ice Shards

The arrival of spring has left Lake Michigan covered in stunning ice shards.


Melting water on the lake has frozen in place. The phenomenon is caused by water that is currently moving underneath the ice as Lake Michigan begins to thaw.

The lake is melting quickly, causing the water to push up sheets of ice to the surface

The US Coast Guard has asked residents to appreciate the view from afar to avoid any incidents. No ice is safe ice especially this time of year. The ice is certainly deteriorating and breaking up.
