Below is footage of Ice Breaking Operations from March 25 and 27 on Lake Michigan in the Straits of Mackinac and Lake Superior involving the United States Coast Guard.
The ice was so extensive, vessels from the Great Lakes Merchant Fleet were called in to assist.
All freighters on Northern Lake Michigan were beset or stuck for at least 24 hours until ice breaking operations could get underway.
