Public advisory - Submitted

The St. Anthony RCMP and the Town of St. Anthony are reminding  people not to cross the Bay of St. Anthony on their snowmobiles.

While the Bay may look like it froze, it can be dangerous and potentially life threatening to venture onto ice, the RCMP advised in a Jan. 19 press release.

" Ice must be at least 25 centimetres (10 inches) thick before it can maintain the weight of a snowmobile and to freeze to the right thickness, the temperature must be well below freezing for several weeks," the police said in their release.
