The long, harsh winter took a toll on the 2014 shipping season.

Iron ore shipments on the Great Lakes are down 17 percent from a year ago, and from the long-term average, according to a report released Wednesday. The Lake Carriers' Association said in the report that high water levels were not enough to offset the delays suffered during the winter.

According to the report, iron ore shipments totaled 19.2 million tons through the end of June, which is the mid-year mark.
