Coastal Ice Conditions

Over the Easter Break, the temperatures along the coast have been pretty warm.

This leaves people wondering how safe it is to travel by ice.

So we decided to get updates from the communities to see how their ice conditions are.

In the Postville area the ice is soft and roughly between 11 and 20 inches.

And people are still going off hunting and wooding.

Regarding Makkovik, we contacted the Makkovik Inuit Community Government.

A worker says the ice is watery, but it is approximately two feet thick.

We’re still waiting for a response from Nain, Hopedale and Rigolet.

There are people still checking the ice in these communities.

We will have an update from these communities once we find out.
