SHARE Huricane Ike's Effect on Lake Michigan

Over three weeks have passed since Hurricane Ike landed on Texan shores. But its damaging effects can still be felt closer to home. Although flooding in Illinois and Indiana has receded, residents are left with longer-lasting damage and serious questions. Richard Whitman studies "beach health" and is the station chief at the Lake Michigan Ecological Research Station in Porter, Indiana. He recently spoke with Eight Forty-Eight's Alison Cuddy from his office in Porter. He started out by describing what the area looks like now.
