Storm topples Lake Superior sea stack (3 Photos)

The natural formation was all that remained of a stone arch whose top collapsed in 2010.

TETTEGOUCHE STATE PARK, Minnesota — A popular subject for photographers was wiped away on the weekend by the same storm system that dumped 55 centimetres of snow on Duluth.

A sea stack that was the remnant of a naturally-formed stone arch on the Lake Superior shoreline at Tettegouche State Park, near Silver Bay, was washed away by waves driven against the rock formation by 80 kilometre-an-hour wind.

The collapse was discovered by park staff on Sunday morning.
