GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — When a powerful storm moved through West Michigan, it whipped up Lake Michigan and caused waves to sweep a woman off a breakwater at Grand Haven.

Bob Walma sent 24 Hour News 8 photos of what happened Sunday. The woman and her bicycle were caught up in a wave that crashed over the breakwater. The man she was with pulled her to safety, but both of their bikes ended up in the water.

No one was hurt.
