Saginaw Bay Ice Deteriorating

With the warmer daytime above freezing temperatures of the last few days, ice conditions on Wild Fowl Bay and Saginaw Bay are deteriorating. Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson said  Friday while piloting a helicopter on an over flight of Wild Fowl Bay during an ice dive and airboat training exercise off of Sand Point, holes in the ice were opening up, especially in a known area of concern located approximately 2 1/2 miles west, north west of Mud Creek.  Sheriff Hanson said without any doubt, there are places on the bay that still have nearly 12 inches of ice on it. However, there are also spots all over as witnessed where it is separating and is opening up to water.  Increasingly warmer temperatures and possible rain will not help. Those out on the bay need to exercise caution and not take the ice for granted.
