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.

This is the final wave that took out the south pier light tower... What a crazy experience! :( :) if you go through them...
