Lakeshore flood watch issued for Friday

Staff Reports Posted 13 June 2019 at 7:57 am

The National Weather Service has issued a lakeshore flood watch for Orleans and Niagara counties on Friday from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The combination of record high lake levels and moderately strong west winds will result in greater wave action and an increase in lakeshore flooding on the shoreline of Lake Ontario, the Weather Service said.

Lakeshore flooding may increase, especially in bays, inlets, and other low-lying areas along the shoreline. The wave action will produce an increase in shoreline erosion, the Weather Service said.
