Lakeshore Flood Warning


Niagara-Northern Erie-Chautauqua-Southern Erie-
1120 AM EST Sun Feb 24 2019

...LAKESHORE FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 AM EST
MONDAY...

* LOCATIONS...Lake Erie shore in Erie and Chautauqua counties
  and the Upper Niagara River in Erie and Niagara counties.

* LAKE SHORE FLOODING...Powerful southwest winds will gust up to
  75 mph. This will result in the water level at Buffalo rising
  to 9 to 11 feet above low water datum. This rise will also
  break up ice on Lake Erie and result in significant ice
  movement.

* TIMING...Until 4 AM EST Monday.

* IMPACTS...Lakeshore flooding is expected along the Lake Erie
  shoreline, including the Buffalo Harbor and waterfront. If
  water levels exceed 10 feet above low water datum flooding may
  occur in the Old First Ward section of Buffalo and at
  Canalside. Rising waters will also push ice chunks onshore,
  potentially damaging structures. Ice will also get pushed
  across the ice boom and into the Upper Niagara River resulting
  in damage along the Upper Niagara River shoreline. The ice may
  dam up at river outlets and result in flooding near river
  mouths.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Lakeshore Flood Warning means lakeshore flooding is occurring,
is imminent, or is expected to occur. People in the warning area
should take immediate action to protect life and property.
