Well to be truthful a tiny Tsunami, †still came out of nowhere and was a little freaky. †I had just finished an account that is a block and a half from Lake Michigan, had just got in my work truck and was finishing out my service report of the location and I felt the truck bump and shimmy, I was like "what the Hell was that???" Looked up from typing my report looked out the window and there was water up to the running boards of my F150. Lake Michigan had rose 4-8 ft in different areas along the coast line. †The water rolled out of the beach parking lot by the play ground and right down the hill on ludington Avenue... this is a picture to show the water rising before it past the beach and hit the Avenue. † Look at the break wall to see scale of water rising in just 5 minutes. Weather service called it a Meteotsunami.

Well I'll be hanged! You must've had a small quake epicentre somewhere under like Michigan then. First I've ever heard about that occurring on a great lake!

Shocked


Cheers,

RR

Wowsers! Low pressure differential? I'll have to look into that. Crazy stuff! Good to here you didn't get swept away. Ford's don't float long......

Never heard of that before. Was this event localized to your area Alex, or was it more widespread? I'll have to ask my fiends in Milwaukee if they had this same experience.


Cheers,

RR

Yes please ask them if they had anything like that on their side of the pond. Both ludington and manistee 45 miles up the coast had this happen.

I read that they happen often, and on all the Great Lakes. Fracking amazing planet! I've seen smaller events like this on mountain lakes when a squall piles down the ravine. Crazy stuff though on the Great Lakes.

Never in all my years of living 10 minutes from the big pond have I seen or heard of it before. Saw a video DNR posted showing the ausable river flowing backwards from the lake during the mini tsunami

Looks like it didn't flow over to the Milwaukee side, according to my buddy there.

Interesting stuff. I never "trusted" the Great Lakes, even though I learned to swim in one. They just seem creepier than the ocean. I think of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Make sense? Of course not, but there it is.

Wow, just wow. I would've thought pressure differences like that would cause ear drums to implode.

Eeek

Lake Michigan is about 10 miles North of one of my accounts in NY. Every once in a while, I'll drive up just to see the lake. Even on a nice day, it's seems ominous to me. Last summer, a giant storm below up and it looked frightening. That town had a small concrete pier like pictured above and it was engulfed in waves. They had a lot of flooding that summer and sandbags were everywhere. I headed South fast!

I dont find her ( lake michigan) scary in the least, but I respect her dearly, I wouldn't blame her if she was punishing our area for a local judge to approve Nestle to steal our water for 200 bucks a year.... we as a people have failed her. She has given us so much with tourism and beauty and we as the greedy plague we are have taken and taken from her. But that's a whole different story that if I got going on would land this thread in the rubber room due to my language and name calling alone.

That's Lake Ontario, Al. Shoreline erosion is a seasonal theme up there. And even on a mild, calm day, who knows what lies beneath the surface, biding its time?
