Lake Michigan Is Silently Killing Dozens Of Beachgoers Each Year And It’s Truly Heartbreaking

With summer finally upon us and water temperatures warming up, more and more people are beginning to flock towards our local beaches. Those who are native to the Great Lakes State are more aware than most of the dangers that come along with swimming at these locations, but not everyone who visits here is as educated as some our residents. With more tragedies predicted to come in 2017, here’s what you should know before cooling off at one of Lake Michigan’s beaches.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Have you ever found yourself stuck in a rip current or dealing with the harsh water of Lake Michigan? If you plan on swimming at any of these beaches, be sure to stay safe and pay attention to any and all signage and Beach Flag Safety Warnings that are posted.
