Portage, Ind. Oceangoing ships are cruising into Indiana's main port along Lake Michigan now that this year's international shipping season has launched.

The first two ships of the season on Thursday brought shipments of steel from Holland to the Port of Indiana in Portage for use at Midwest manufacturers.

The captain of one ship told The Times of Munster that it encountered thick ice along the journey from the Atlantic Ocean, becoming stuck for hours in ice under a bridge in Ontario, Canada. The other ship's captain, Arkadiusz Sienkiewicz, says the trip from Cleveland to the Indiana port typically lasts two days, but took a week because of ice.
