Big Waves Topple Small Boat In South Haven

Despite warnings that the water was going to be rough over Labor Day, there were still people who braved it. In one instance in South Haven, it could have had some unpleasant results. A small Zodiac boat got flipped in the channel Monday, but the two people aboard were able to get back on top of the capsized boat and get it over to the side. Emergency crews from the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department and South Haven Fire Department were called to the scene just after 11:30 a.m. and within 10 minutes had cleared the scene with no injuries. We do have a small craft advisory through late tonight for Lake Michigan from the Indiana border north past South Haven.
