Sheriff warns of unsafe ice conditions on bay
ESCANABA — Delta County Sheriff’s Office, along with Delta County Serach and Rescue, are asking residents to use caution when going on the ice. The conditions can change quickly from day to day. Due to recent warm temperatures and wind, ice conditions have deteriorated on Little Bay de Noc.
There have been several reports of ATVs and snowmobiles going through the ice. All lake access points on Little Bay de Noc have some sort of hazard. Use extreme caution when venturing out on the ice or avoid it all together until ice conditions stabilize.
If you do decide to go on ice, always tell someone where you are going and when you will return. Wear a personal flotation device, carry ice picks, and put your phone in a waterproof container. If you do get into trouble, call 911.
