MENTOR, Ohio — If you ever wondered what Lake Erie looks like under a Beach Hazards Statement, one local woman gave us a glimpse of wild waves on Sunday.
A local photographer captured some photos of giant Lake Erie waves while most of the lakeshore counties remain under a Beach Hazards Statement until 11 p.m. Sunday.
LeeAnn Duke shot stunning photos of giant waves at Mentor Headlands Beach State Park.
Gusty winds and wave action cause currents on the lakeshore. Swimmers should not enter the water under these conditions as these currents can carry swimmers away from shore through a sand bar and along structures extending out into the lake.
