Above icy Lake Michigan

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) A winter of jarring cold has produced near-record ice on the Great Lakes. That impacts West Michigan’s weather and our recreation.

Curious people from all over West Michigan are checking out the ice on Lake Michigan. But while it looks incredible, it’s also incredibly dangerous. Three people fell through the ice over the weekend. They were all okay, but state police say it’s not worth taking the chance. The ice has cracks and fissures in it that make it unstable and unpredictable.

Over the weekend, Storm Team 8 meteorologist Kyle Underwood took to the air to survey the ice from above. Take a look at his unique perspective.
