CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Underground mining operations have been temporarily stopped at Cargill Salt on Cleveland's Whiskey Island.

This, after data assessing the mine showed concern in one particular area that was mined years ago.

As a result of the findings, the company made the proactive decision to halt operations rather than risk the safety of miners.

19 Action News has learned there is still plenty of salt on the surface, and shipping operations will continue.
