Canada: Lake Huron Storm Went storm chasing: found one! While out on one of my many adventures, a sunny walk on the beach turned more dramatic as the storm moved in. The alarming fall in the lake’s water level made me realize that I was seeing climate change in action.

Lake Huron Storm

1. Chantry Island, Southampton, Lake Huron. This 81-hectare island was made a bird sanctuary in 1957 and is home to gulls and great blue herons as well as migratory birds. The lighthouse is one of six nearly identical Imperial lighthouses constructed between 1855 and 1859. The newly exposed shoreline and receding water levels are shocking but the lighthouse still promises safety in a storm.
