Water levels in Lake Superior usually don't change that much until this year and that's worrying people along the lake
Bob Krunemaker is the Superintendent at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in far northern Wisconsin. He says the lake always go down in the fall but this year it's still going down and is only within inches of an all time low.
Experts say a drought is to blame. The low water levels could mean higher prices for goods carried by lake shippers because freighters will have to lighten their loads. At the Apostle Islands Park it's safety. Krunemaker says the docks are so far out of the water some boats are starting slip underneath them.
Not much anyone can do about the water levels but hope for lots of snow and rain in coming months.
But it raises the question. Is this a sign of global warming and the predicted climate change?
Krunemaker says he's not a scientist and doesn't have that answer but he says all the things predicted regarding such a climate shift are being seen right now in Lake Superior.
