DETROIT -

The U.S. Coast Guard in Detroit is warning that ice on western Lake Erie and the Maumee Bay Channel should be considered unsafe Monday during ice-breaking operations.

A Coast Guard cutter will be in the area for most of Monday while escorting a tugboat and a barge down the Detroit River to Toledo, Ohio. Everyone is advised to stay clear of the area.

The vessels are expected to arrive in Toledo between late Monday afternoon and evening.
