SAUGATUCK, Mich. — "Ice volcanoes" sound real movie theater-like. I thought Lake Michigan was on fire, real talk. But, it's a regular occurrence in the frigid temps of Lake Michigan.

The National Weather Service says the volcanoes form at the edge of ice shelves, as waves battle the shore, and force water up through cones of ice.

It was a great day to visit the beach and watch the waves interact with the ice. Here's a couple "ice volcanoes" erupting at Oval Beach on Sunday, February 16, 2020.
