Weekend Weather Eroded Indiana Dunes

By Chuck Sudo in News on Dec 16, 2010 8:00PM

Looks like the winds and severe weather from Sunday did some damage to Indiana Dunes State Park. Waves of up to 30 feet crashed the shore Sunday and Monday, leaving 12-foot sand cliffs in their wake. the damage from the storms extended to Porter, Ogden Dunes and Dune Acres.

The storms are reportedly the worst to hit Indiana Dunes in seventeen years. Visitors (?!?!) to the park weren't allowed on the beach because "they would have been swept away" by the waves.
