Ice delays Great Lakes freighter traffic

PORT HURON (WKZO) -- The anchoring of at least 15 freighters in Lake Huron between Port Huron and Sarnia, Ontario because of ice jams further north is being called historic.

Cutter ships are trying to open Lake Superior, which is still about 40-percent frozen, and portions of the St. Mary's River. It could be another two weeks before the U.S. and Canadian coast guards release the freighters.

Forecasters expect some Lake Superior ice to remain into June.
