OPP urge that the public practices proper ice safety. Lakes and rivers in the area might have a thin layer of ice, but with the milder weather they are still not safe to venture onto. Residents must take caution regarding thin ice conditions on area waterways the OPP said in a media release.
Ice does not freeze at uniform thickness throughout the body of water . When ice forms early and may look safe, it is likely not thick, strong, or stable enough to support much weight. Thickness should be checked regularly as you move further onto the ice.
