Freighters need improved ice forecasts for lakes


LANSING — In 2015, the Arthur M. Anderson, loaded with iron ore on a passage across Lake Erie, got stuck in ice for five days near Conneaut, Ohio. “It couldn’t get in to Conneaut and then it couldn’t get out, and it had a full load,” said Tom Rayburn, director of Environmental & Regulatory Affairs of the Lake Carriers’ Association in Cleveland. The trade association promotes the interests of operators of cargo vessels on the Great Lakes. Ice causes a lot of problems for Great Lakes ships, from delays at locks to damage to ships. “Every once in a while they’ll get a hole in them,” Rayburn said.
