Ice Still Thin, Despite Colder Temperatures

NAPLES - No one was hurt when a truck broke through thin ice on Long Lake and there are also reports of a woman falling through ice in Southwest Harbor.

Authorities say both incidents yesterday are warnings that conditions are not safe on many of Maine's lakes and bays.

The Maine Warden Service says ice should be at least four inches thick before it's safe for walking or ice fishing, five inches for snowmobiles are ATVs, eight to 12 inches for cars and small pickups, and at least a foot thick for a medium-sized truck.
