November Gales by Kevin Pihlaja
WOOD-TV has a report on the high winds that ripped Michigan this weekend:
Peak wind speeds reached 68 mph in some areas, causing intense waves along Lake Michigan. Waves at the Ludington buoy peaked at 13.5 feet.
…According to the Consumer’s Energy power outage map, 27,704 were without power across the state as of 5:20 a.m. Monday.
Norton Shores was tops with gusts of 68 MPH, and it was blowing hard in Jackson (64), Grand Rapids (63) & Lansing (54). The Detroit Metro Airport in Romulus recorded a 61 MPH gust as well.
Kevin took this photo of waves on Lake Superior battering the Eagle Harbor Lighthouse on the Keweenaw Peninsula last November. See more in his Lake Superior photo gallery on Flickr.
