      Lake Superior waves come crashing in

      Lake Superior waves come crashing in to Marquette

      Lake Superior's waves were crashing ashore in Marquette into the breakwater at Presque Isle on Tuesday.

      North winds over 40 miles an hour were whipping the lake into a frenzy, creating eight foot swells. The waves were also slamming the shoreline on Lakeshore Boulevard with water coming over the top of the rocks.

      There were also a number of people out in the weather, hoping for that one in a million picture.

      Waves out on Lake Superior were over 20 feet, which brought shipping to a standstill. Ore boats and their crews have taken refuge in ports and protected areas, waiting out the superstorm named Sandy.
