GREAT LAKES-ICE COVER
Correction: Great Lakes-Ice Cover story

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, February 12, 2014 3:00 PM EST
CHICAGO


In a story Feb. 8 about the amount of ice covering the Great Lakes, The Associated Press erroneously reported that Lake Huron is the largest of the lakes. Lake Superior is the largest.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Cold temps cover 79 percent of Great Lakes in ice

Bitter cold temperatures in Midwest cover nearly 80 percent of Great Lakes in ice

This winter's bitter cold temperatures in the Midwest have covered a stunning 79 percent of the Great Lakes in ice.

That's not a record, but it's well above the long-term average of about 51 percent.

Lake Michigan is about 63 percent frozen. Lake Huron is about 85 percent covered.

Lake Erie, at 93 percent, had the most ice cover as of Saturday.

The data comes from the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory.

It tracks the ice cover because of its potential impacts on everything from hydropower generation to commercial shipping and fishing.

Studying the ice cover also helps determine climate patterns and water levels.
