Massive waves slam Michigan City as fall blows in

NOW: Massive waves slam Michigan City as fall blows in

NEXT:

A strong north wind awoke the anger in Lake Michigan on Wednesday, leading to waves of more than 10 feet on some beaches in LaPorte County. 

Waves are expected to remain very high Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Lakeshore Flood Warnings and Advisories are in effect until late on Thursday. 

Fortunately, lake levels on Lake Michigan have dropped significantly since last September, when Michiana observed record-high lake levels for nine months straight. However, even though levels have dropped more than a foot since last year at this time, they are still more than a foot above average. 

Wave heights and weather conditions should calm down as the weekend arrives.
