A Lake Shore Flood Watch has been issued for Lake-O!

The National Weather Service has issued a Lake Shore Flood Watch for all counties on the south shore of Lake Ontario for late Sunday and into early next week.

...LAKESHORE FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY EVENING
THROUGH TUESDAY AFTERNOON...

* LOCATIONS...Niagara, Orleans, Monroe, Wayne, Northern Cayuga,
  and Oswego counties.

* LAKE SHORE FLOODING...The combination of very high lake levels
  and moderate to strong northwest winds will result in greater
  wave action and an increase in lakeshore flooding on the
  southern shoreline of Lake Ontario.

* TIMING...From Sunday evening through Tuesday afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Lakeshore flooding may increase, especially in bays,
  inlets, and other low lying areas along the shoreline. Wave
  action will produce an increase in shoreline erosion.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Lakeshore Flood Watch means that conditions favorable for
lakeshore flooding are expected to develop. Residents on or near
the shore should take action to protect property...and listen for
later statements or warnings.
