GRAND BEACH, Mich. (AP) -- Grand Beach officials have closed down all public beaches in the southwestern Michigan community due to extreme erosion from winter storms.
Village Superintendent Bob Dabbs tells WSBT-TV the damage is well into the thousands of dollars, and Police Chief Dan Schroeder says it includes the bottoms of stair accesses and other ramps, which he says are eroded and dangerous.
Officials say they'll hit the beach in the early spring to begin repairs to the stairs. They might need to truck in sand as well.
Grand Beach is in Berrien County, just north of the Indiana border.
