Record Ice-Free Winter on Great Lakes

DETROIT, Michigan (News Talk 1480 WHBC_) – It’s been a mild Winter, but it’s a record-breaker on the Great Lakes.

Only three-percent of the lakes were covered in ice in mid-February, the lowest figure since records have been kept going back to 1973.

Typically, 40-percent of the Great Lakes are iced over at that time.

Scientists are working to determine what the consequences might be, if any.
