NOAA installs new hi-tech Lake Michigan web camera in Holland

PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) --The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's first camera on the Great Lakes is now in service at Holland State Park.

Users can access the camera to see how busy the beaches are, but the real purpose is research and giving the Holland-area a leg up when it comes to safety.

Nathan Bocks, mayor of Holland said, “Ottawa County’s first responders are able to dial into that camera. If they get a call where there’s an emergency at the beach, they can access that camera feed immediately."
