Here is a clipping from 1985, the year some summer cottages fell into Lake Michigan. Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are high again this year. It is normal for the Great Lakes’ water levels to rise and fall. Don’t buy real estate too close to the water. It is powerful.
Read more about the Great Lakes in my book, The Dynamic Great Lakes. This

Four eggs are in the peregrine falcon’s nest in Grand Haven, MI atop the stack at the Board of Light and power
The BLP operates a webcam aimed at the nest box, and people can visit the camera website to watch the nest activity.
According to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, peregrines are considered endangered in Michigan, though they are no longer on the federal endangered list.
During the 1960s, the peregrine falcon population declined sharply as the shells of peregrine falcon eggs became extremely fragile due to the prevalent use of the pesticide DDT. By 1968, the entire United States peregrine falcon population east of the Mississippi was gone.
Michigan began its peregrine recovery efforts in 1986, and by 2014 there were 47 nest sites in the state, and 23 of them produced young.
The peregrine falcon chicks usually hatch in May.
As reported in the Grand Haven Tribune.
