Dry June Doesn't Keep Lake Superior From Reaching Record Levels

Lake Superior has set a new record high water level for July 1st.

  June was drier than normal, so the big lake only rose one-point-two-inches, but it still stands one-point-six-inches higher than the previous record set 76 years ago.  Lake Superior was 14 inches above normal when the month started.  That offers the increased risk of shoreline erosion, lakeshore flooding and coastal damages.
