Lake Erie Shoreline Flood Warning Termination (Event Message #3)

January 19, 2020

The Flood Warning issued on Saturday, January 18, 2019 for the Lake Erie shoreline is being returned to the standing Watershed Conditions Statement – Lake Erie Flood Outlook.

Lake Erie water levels have receded since last night. Standing water, erosion, property damage and other impacts from yesterday continue to affect areas along the shoreline. Lake Erie static water levels are expected to remain very high over the coming months. High static water levels increase the risk of flooding when moderate to severe wind-driven surge events occur. Strong lakeshore surge events typically occur from fall through spring.

At this time, LPRCA reminds everyone to stay away from areas affected by recent shoreline flooding due to erosion, instability and other damage. Parents are especially reminded to keep children away from these areas.

LPRCA staff will continue to monitor forecasted conditions and will update this message as necessary.

Contact Paul Gagnon at 519-429-4899 should further information be required.
