Shipwreck pushed toward shore
ROGERS CITY, Mich. (AP) — Wreckage from a freighter that sank in Lake Huron around 115 years ago has moved toward Michigan’s shoreline due to high water levels and waves, weakening the ruins further, officials said.
Joseph S. Fay was a ship that sank on October 19, 1905, The Alpena News reported.
One side of the shipwreck had moved about 10 feet (3 meters) inland during a storm last October, said Eric Klein, lighthouse caretaker. He added that it has since been pushed further inland following a series of storms and estimated it’s now about 25 feet (7 meters) from its original location near the 40 Mile Point Lighthouse.
