IJC Warns 2019 Shoreline Flooding Could Exceed Devastating 2017 Levels

The international group that monitors the water level on Lake Ontario have a new warning this morning.

Officials with the International Joint Commission say water levels are expected to exceed what they were in 2017, when flooding in some areas caused more than 100 million dollars in damages to shoreline homes and businesses.

The IJC says levels could crest in the next couple of weeks, but that that timetable could shorten if there's a lot of rain. Residents living along the shoreline are asked to report any changes in conditions.

Meantime, members of the commission, along with their Canadian Chair will be in the Rochester area for closed door meetings with officials. They will also tour some of the areas impacted by the flooding.
