Coast Guard and other crews are searching for multiple snowmobilers that were trapped on Lake Erie Sunday afternoon.

Although it has been bitterly cold for an extended period of time, there are still areas of the Great Lakes that are open. It is not uncommon for cracks to form and the sunlight and warmer temperatures are also contributing to the dangers on the lake. This is another great reminder to stay on the trail and marked areas. There have been multiple fatalities here in Western New York and across the snowmobile trails in New York State. It has been a good year for those who have been waiting years for good conditions. However, safety needs to be the number one priority.

We will keep you updated on any further developments here and with Clay and Company weekday mornings from 5-10am.
