U.S. and Canadian Coast Guard crews helped to keep commerce moving on the Great Lakes by breaking ice for bulk carrier CSL Laurentien in eastern Lake Eerie on March 27. The crews encountered plate ice as thick as 3 feet and ice ridges as tall as 8 feet.

The crew of Coast Guard Cutter Neah Bay, homeported in Cleveland, work with Canadian Coast Guard Ship Samuel Risley to escort the CSL Laurentien through the ice.
