Detroit Ice Cutter On The Way

CLEVELAND (AP) - Coast Guard officials in Cleveland are sending
two boats out today to try and break up ice jams in a handful of
northeast Ohio rivers.

A Cleveland-based ship will work to unclog an ice jam at the
mouth of the Grand River in Lake County, while another boat from
Detroit will arrive to work on the Vermillion, Huron, Black and
Rocky rivers.

Coast Guard officials say they hope to break up the ice and
prevent rivers from flooding. Yesterday some minor flooding
occurred as heavy snows melted and ice jammed rivers' flow.

Noinjuries were reported, but some residents in Vermillion were
evacuated after the river rose two feet above flood stage.
Those residents were allowed to return home later yesterday when
the river receded.

Emergency officials are most concerned about the Fairport Harbor area's businesses.
