Impacts of Ice Still Felt on Lakes in May

CLEVELAND — Iron ore shipments on the Great Lakes totaled 6.4 million tons in May, a virtual repeat of a year ago. The total would have been about 600,000 tons more, but three 1,000-footlong U.S.-flag lakers were out of service for a combined 65 days in May to repair damage suffered in the heavy ice that covered the Lakes in March and April.

Shipments from U.S. ports total 5.8 million tons, again virtually unchanged from a year ago. Loadings at Canadian terminals in the St. Lawrence Seaway increased marginally to 588,000 tons.
