Saxon Harbor floods


Ralph Ansami/Daily Globe

A NEW set of waterfalls developed at Saxon Harbor in Saxon, Wis., Thursday evening when Oronto Creek overflowed the boardwalk, resulting in a major mess. Huge ice chunks and trees washed down the creek and the blacktop road to the main marina was under ice and water. Iron County officials were assessing the situation Thursday evening. It's the most severe flooding since the harbor was reconstructed a few years ago.
