Algoma being spared from damage

Unlike some communities, the city of Algoma is being spared from much of the damage being done to the lakeshore due to high winds and water levels. Mayor Wayne Schmidt says its chamber of commerce building suffered some damage due to waves hitting the shoreline, but that problem has been rectified thanks to hauling in debris to cushion the blow. He feels for communities like Kewaunee where high water levels are causing major issues with no relief in sight.

Schmidt says it could be an interesting spring when the snow melts with experts saying water levels will only continue to rise in the coming year.
