      Ice breaking begins on Superior

      Colder temperatures have meant ice build up on the Great Lakes, and Sunday, the Coast Guard began ice breaking operations in western Lake Superior.

      Operation Taconite got underway Sunday afternoon, initially breaking up ice at ports in Duluth, Minnesota and Superior, Wisconsin.

      In the coming days and weeks, more Coast Guard ice breakers will join in the operation.

      Currently there are no channel closures.
