Lake Erie Investigation into Unknown Substance

The Coast Guard is investigating an unknown substance in Lake Erie.

The Coast Guard says the substance is coming from the site of a sunken barge near Kelley’s Island Shoal. Crews also reported smelling a strong odor coming from the sunken ship.

Now, a salvage company has been hired to identify and secure the leak coming from the ship. They are expected to be on the scene as early as Tuesday.
