Lakeshore flood warning issued for today until 5 p.m.
Another lakeshore flood warning has been issued for Orleans, Niagara and Monroe counties today until 5 p.m.
The combination of a high Lake Ontario and wave action may worsen flooding in low-lying areas along the shore, the National Weather Service in Buffalo said.
The shoreline has been pounded by waves since Sunday, said Dawn Herbeck of Kendall, a leader with the United Shoreline organization.
“It’s really bad right now,” she said at about 9 this morning. “We had a quiet four weeks but it’s been hell on wheels the past few days.”
