A lakeshore flood warning is in effect from 8 p.m. today until 8 a.m. Saturday for Orleans, Niagara, Monroe and Wayne counties.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo said the combination of high lake levels and building wave action could contribute to flooding in low-lying areas and increased overall erosion along the Lake Ontario shoreline.
