Beware of Thin Ice on Maine’s Lakes & Ponds! [VIDEO]
This past week, a Chevy Impala was pulled from the bottom of Long Pond in Southwest Harbor, which is the town’s drinking supply. Four ice shacks now reside at the bottom of Eagle Lake on MDI, another public drinking water supply.
In the past week, Maine’s fresh waters have consumed ATVs, ice shacks, trucks and snowmobiles. Law enforcement has reported that 14 people have broken through the ice recently, luckily all survived to tell their story.
Needless to say be careful. This winter weather roller coaster with Mother Nature at its controls has not produced consistent, safe and reliable ice on Maine’s lakes and ponds. The Maine Warden Service reminds you to be diligent when checking the ice before you walk or ride on it. Click here for the Wardens Service’s latest ice advisories.
