Video: Salt mine lies 1,800 feet under Lake Erie

Have you ever wondered where road salt comes from? One source is the Whiskey Island Cargill Salt Mine, which lies far below the floor of Lake Erie.

It's featured on this segment of the WVIZ/PBS show Newsdepth, produced by Mary Fecteau and shot by Dave Staruch and John Cummings.
