Presque Isle Bay Ice Report

Just when ice conditions took a turn for the better on Presque Isle Bay, this warning is in place:
The Erie-Western Pennsylvania Port Authority has issued a public advisory for Presque Isle Bay and adjacent waters, effective Friday through Jan. 19.
DonJon Shipbuilding & Repair, 200 block of East Bayfront Parkway, is expecting the arrival of three freighters, possibly accompanied by an ice-breaking vessel, Port Authority officials said.
While the disruption of ice is expected to be limited to the eastern portion of Presque Isle Bay, all ice on the bay could be affected, Port Authority officials said.
Ice angers started getting back onto the ice this past weekend. Marina Bay and Misery Bay each had a few huts in place and a few bucket-sitters as well.
