Report: Lake Superior has made a big jump
Saturday, June 1, 2013, 5:40 - A new report says the level of Lake Superior has made a big jump.
Lake Superior usually rises only about 10 centimetres each May. But thanks to late snow and a cold spring that held back runoff, May more than made up for the difference.
The lake now sits just 18 centimetres below its long-term average for June 1. It is a full 8 centimetres above the level at this time last year.
The Duluth News Tribune
reports Lakes Huron and Michigan also continued their rise from near-record lows in late winter.
