Lake Erie Is Almost Completely Frozen Over
Ice stretches across more than 94 percent of Lake Erie. The last time it was entirely ice-covered was nearly two decades ago.By Katherine Biek | February 19, 2015
Record cold temperatures sweeping across the country have left Lake Erie almost completely covered in ice.
WEWS reports more than 94 percent of the water in the Great Lake is currently frozen.
The Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, run by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, reports the ice coverage has been a recent development. There was little to no ice covering the lake back in January.
