North Shore

Wayne Jensen says he's lost more than 15 feet of beach along his South Shore Lake Superior waterfront property near Port Wing since water levels pushed above normal levels in 2014. Jensen said huge chunks of clay are eroding off his land into the lake due to wind and wave action, muddying what had been clear water. Lake Superior is nearly a foot above normal and near record highs for this time of year. Photo courtesy Wayne Jensen
