Weather causes shipping lanes to back up at Twin Ports in Duluth, MN


DULUTH, Minnesota (WXOW) - This wacky weather is taking its toll on the shipping industry. A total of nine ships were unable to get into the harbor in Duluth this weekend, thanks to all the ice that was pushed in by winds.

Those high winds from the latest storm pushed ice packs into the shipping lanes. A spokesperson for the Port Authority said it made for a nice view, but it's frustrating for crews on board. The only silver lining: the back up shows twin ports is busy early in the season.
