September 21, 2018

CHARLEVOIX, Mich. (AP) — The National Weather Service has posted a lakeshore flood warning for six northern Michigan counties on Lake Michigan.

Forecasters say high winds and waves could combine to cause beach erosion and coastal flooding through Friday night. The counties are Emmet, Charlevoix, Leelanau, Antrim, Benzie and Manistee.

Swimming would be very risky. The Weather Service says people should stay off piers and jetties to avoid being swept into the water.

Much of central and northern Michigan is under a wind advisory. Winds could reach 55 mph.
