MANITOWOC, Wisc. – A lighthouse on Lake Michigan is no more thanks to high winds and waves, according to WLUK.
The FOX affiliate reports that the 20-foot-tall fiberglass tower fell into the lake around 8:30 a.m. Monday, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
The wind that toppled this lighthouse is with a cold front that's coming our way. That cold front will send temperatures plummeting Wednesday and Thursday and will result in strong wind gusts.
