Governor Chris Sununu Issues Statement Following Series of Accidents at Lake Winnipesaukee

Concord, NH – Following a series of accidents, including two fatalities, at Lake Winnipesaukee, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement:

“While the heavy snow from from our recent winter storm provides for optimum conditions for winter sports like snowmobiling, they also create hazards and we must be cautious,” Governor Chris Sununu said. “Today’s tragic accidents at Lake Winnipesaukee remind us that even in the best of winters our lakes can be highly unpredictable. There will always be areas of thin ice and open water that need to be avoided to ensure safety.  Be careful and be aware of your surroundings.
