A Coast Guard icebreaker is coming into Owen Sound’s harbour tomorrow morning to help a commercial vessel get into port.

The Coast Guard is warning that there are unsafe ice conditions in the vicinity of any icebreaking operation on the Great Lakes.

Dates and routes are subject to change with little or no notice, due to weather, ice conditions, shipping schedules or other unexpected situations.

Broken and fragmented icy tracks left behind by icebreaking operations and other ship traffic may not freeze over immediately and the Coast Guard and OPP are warning people to stay away from those areas.
