The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) announced it is scheduled to begin icebreaking operations in the vicinity of the Saginaw Bay Entrance Channel Sunday beginning at 7 a.m.

The crew of Coast Guard Cutter Hollyhock, a 225-foot seagoing buoy tender homeported in Port Huron, Mich., will be icebreaking from Gravelly Shoal to the entrance of the Saginaw River.

Any ice in the vicinity of the cutter or the track that it creates should be considered unsafe and the Coast Guard advises everyone to stay clear.
