Another lakeshore flood watch issued for Orleans, Niagara

Staff Reports Posted 8 June 2019 at 3:11 pm

A lakeshore flood watch has been issued for Orleans and Niagara counties from 8 p.m. Monday until 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued the flood watch due to the combination of very high lake levels and moderately strong west to northwest winds, which will result in greater wave action. The wave action will produce an increase in shoreline erosion.

There likely will be an increase in lakeshore flooding on the shoreline of Lake Ontario, especially in bays, inlets, and other low-lying areas along the shoreline.
