MANITOWOC (WLUK) -- Heavy winds and waves in Lake Michigan damaged the S.S. Badger's dock as Blizzard Evelyn hit the lakeshore over the weekend.

The dock's condition is being assessed Monday.

Officials believe the repairs will be done before the S.S. Badger starts its sailing season, May 11.

Last year, the U.S. Department of Transportation gave $5 million to the S.S. Badger to fix its ferry docks.
