GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder says he's considering whether the state should take "urgent or emergency" action to help harbors hurt by low Great Lakes levels.

Snyder says many Michigan residents don't realize the severity of the problems caused by low water. Lake Michigan's level at the end of October was more than 2 feet below its long-term average.

The governor says he could propose something when he unveils his next budget on Feb. 7. Snyder says a long-term solution is needed to improve Michigan's Great Lakes harbors.

He made his comments Friday in Grand Rapids at the annual meeting of the Michigan Press Association.
