Officials with the Long Point Region Conservation Authority have issued a Flood Outlook message for all areas of the Lake Erie shoreline.
Overall, the Great Lakes have received above-average precipitation this fall and remain at or above average levels. Currently, the static level of Lake Erie is 56 centimeters above average and 6 centimeters above 2017 levels. Lake Erie is now at its highest level since 1986 and the second highest since 1918.
As a result of the high lake levels, there is an overall increased risk for flooding and erosion along the shorelines of Lake Erie.
Long Point Region Conservation Authority staff will continue to monitor conditions and will update this flood message as necessary.
