Strong winds create large waves in Door County

Sturgeon Bay - Today Local 5 checked out how the windy conditions effected different waterways surrounding Door County from Lake Michigan to the Bay of Green Bay to the Sturgeon Bay.At Cave Point on the Lake Michigan side large waves crashed against the bluffs creating a potential dangerous situation. However, it wasn't as cold on the Lake Michigan side of Door County.

Because the winds were gusting from the southwest the Bay of Green Bay side was really cold with the wind whipping of the bay and nothing to block it, the waves weren't as large but there were white caps as far as the eye could see.

The winds kept the Sturgeon Bay relatively calm in the city and the winds seemed a little more gentle within city limits.
