November Storm Fan Photos | 2015

We’ve had a pretty mild Fall so far here in the Grand Haven area especially compared to last November where we saw several inches of snow. That all changed early last week when local forecasters called for up to 60 mph winds and ‘Monster’ 15 to 20 foot waves for Thursday and Friday. Whoa.

In anticipation of the storm, local public safety officials closed access to the Grand Haven north and south piers since waves this size surely would easily wash over the pier structures. We cannot remember the last time this has happened but are glad that they did. Lake Michigan is a powerful and unpredictable force.

Also in anticipation of the massive waves, professional and amature photographers locally and from across the state geared up and made their way to Grand Haven to capture the action. Starting early Thursday morning, countless stunning images and videos were shared with us through our social media channels. Here are some of our favorites!
