Shipping On Great Lakes Could Return To Normal Soon

Shipping operations on the Great Lakes could return to normal by mid-day tomorrow.  That's after a large field of ice created a shipping jam yesterday on eastern Lake Superior, west of the Soo Locks.  The Coast Guard has two giant ice-cutters chipping away at the 35-square-mile ice jam, including the Alder from Duluth-Superior and the Mackinaw -- which is the largest ice-breaker on the Great Lakes.  Several smaller units are working to create paths for incoming ships. Six vessels that are headed for the lower Great Lakes are trapped for now, along with a dozen boats heading to Upper Lake Superior.  At last word, two outbound vessels cleared the ice jam with the help of a Canadian cutter. One boat, the Kaye E. Barker, had a hole punched its hull due to the thick ice.
