The police have issued an alert about people using “beach” tents to sleep on the beach.
The message was posted to Facebook, urging people to avoid the “snow covered areas” at a resort in Pontiac.
Police said they had been in contact with some residents in the resort and urged them to not set up camp near any of the beach’s facilities.
“We are advising all residents to avoid camping in the beach area or in the surrounding area,” the warning said.
“If you find yourself in the position of being a camping guest at this resort, please take your own safety into your own hands.
If you’re unsure of the situation, please contact the resort or police.”
It said people in the area were also asked to take extra care with their belongings, as they could be damaged if they try to retrieve them.
“The resort has issued a notification for this situation, which we hope will help reduce the amount of damage to property and visitors, and is urging people not to set up camping near any beach facility,” the message said.
The resort’s management has not confirmed the nature of the warning.
In the wake of the alert, some resort guests have said they are taking the advice to heart and are planning to stay put.
