Coast guards in the U.S. and Canada were continuing to cooperate on ice-breaking operations in the St. Clair River, northeast of Detroit. The U.S. Coast Guard also says escorts were being provided for commercial vessels in the shipping channel. Commercial ships going through the channel help break the ice which allows water to flow, resulting in lower water levels and less flooding along the shoreline. Earlier this month, both coast guards began deploying icebreaking ships to the river to break up ice jams that contributed to flooding in the area.
