Great Lakes 90% covered in ice

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - The Great Lakes are almost completely frozen over.

Federal researchers say ice covered 90.5 percent of the lakes' surface as of Sunday.

That's one of the highest percentages ever recorded.

Back in 1979, ice coverage on the Great Lakes hit an all-time high of 94.7 percent.

One scientist says that record could be broken this week.
