Lake Superior’s level

There’s been a mostly fun conversation over the last week on the effect of the Duluth flood on Lake Superior water level.

What’s the impact been so far?

Here’s the latest water level gauge from the Canadian side, in Thunder Bay, Ontario.


The gray line is 602 feet. Most of the time the lake has been above that level this year has been int he last week. It was three days after the storm before the lake reached its peak of about 3 inches higher, and it’s been dropping since.
