More flooding, erosion along Lake Ontario shore possible on Friday

Lake Ontario's southern shore faces further flooding and shore erosion on Friday.

A flood watch has been issued by the National Weather Service from Friday morning through late Friday night for Niagara and Orleans counties.

"The combination of high lake levels and moderate to strong northeast winds and high waves will likely result in increased flooding and shoreline erosion along the immediate Lake Ontario shoreline," the weather service said.

In addition to the lake level and winds, more rain is expected at least the next several days. Forecasters said the public should expect a near repeat of the flooding conditions experienced on Sunday.

The weather service advised residents on or near the shore to take action to protect their property.

A state of emergency remains in effect for the towns in Niagara and Orleans counties along the shore. The weather service has also issued a small-craft advisory for the waters along the lakeshore.
