Warnings about ice on reservoirs and lakes

Chris Turner doesn't take any chances when he goes out on the ice at Pattagansett Lake in East Lyme.

Cleats keep him from slipping and a heavy metal pole lets him know how thick the ice is.

Water comes up pretty quickly out of the first hole he makes. Further out on the lake the ice is thicker.

"It's about three and a half, four inches thick," says Turner of Gales Ferry.

He says if it's four inches he'll go ice fishing.
