High lake levels submerge west Michigan beaches

People walk along the beach at Grand Haven State Park on May 20, 2016. Erosion and near-record-high lake levels have reduced what had been expansive stretches of beach around the West Michigan shoreline. It has risen 4 feet since January 2013, when it hit a record low. It’s in contrast to water levels for Lake Michigan and Lake Huron in 2013, which were 2 feet below average.
