Timelapse Captures Massive Ice Sheet Breaking Away From Lake Michigan Shoreline

An enormous sheet of ice broke away from Lake Michigan’s shore near Chicago, Illinois, amid westerly winds on February 19.

This time-lapse, captured by Travis McGhee, shows the sheet drifting away near Montrose Harbor.

The National Weather Service said on February 19 a westward breeze was “helping to break up and push some of our ice cover eastward”. Credit: Travis McGhee via Storyful
