Platte River Ice Jam - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Platte River Ice Jam

Posted: Updated:

The Platte River is starting to freeze in Honor, which could mean flooding.

This happens often according to the Hart Sheriff's Department.

Ice gets backed up and forms a dam-like structure, allowing Honor to flood.

In an effort to relieve the jam, the Sheriff's Department used their air boat to break up the ice.

The jam has been loosened.

Trees in the area are now down, but there is no current flooding.
