Caution urged on area lakes


The Cass County Sheriff’s Office urges extreme caution on area lakes, as heavy snows have caused flooding and deteriorated ice conditions.

Prior to the heavy snow, area lakes were starting to see early good ice starting to build. However, recent heavy snowfalls have insulated the ice and caused flooding. Even with the last week of cold temperatures, it will take time for good and adequate ice to build.
