Interesting Storm Fact:

A measurable seiche took place on Lake Michigan early Thursday morning. Lake levels registered a 1.5 to 2.5-foot rise in water levels due to the storms.

What’s a seiche? It is a sudden oscillation of water levels due to pressure change (usually caused by a passing storm). Think bathtub water swooshing from side to side.
