Lake Ontario shoreline warning issued

Two On Your Side meteorologist Heather Waldman says this warning is connected to the above average rain amounts we have had in the area over the past month.

ALBION, N.Y. - The Orleans County Sheriff's Office is asking boaters to stay as far away as possible from the shoreline of Lake Ontario due to high water levels.

Concerns about shoreline erosion, submerged docks and debris are behind the request. 

State Navigation Law requires a 100' No Wake Zone, but the office is asking all boaters to voluntarily observe a 500' No Wake Zone until further notice.

Two On Your Side meteorologist Heather Waldman says this warning is connected to the above average rain amounts we have had in the area over the past month. Watch the video on this page for more on the issue.
