Flood warning issued for Lake Ontario

Staff Reports Posted 10 October 2017 at 2:39 pm

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a lakeshore flood warning from 7 a.m. Wednesday to 2 a.m. Thursday for Orleans, Niagara and Monroe counties.

The above-average lake levels, combined with strong northeast winds and building wave action, make the south shore of Lake Ontario vulnerable to erosion and flooding, especially at low-lying areas near bays and inlets, the Weather Service said.

Residents are urged to take precautions to protect property.
