Shoreline damage possible due to high winds

Quinte Conservation is warning shoreline residents on the Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario of the high winds expected to hit the region tomorrow.

“It is predicted that the wind could reach 80 kilometres per hour which may cause wave action to reach heights up to two metres, potentially resulting in shoreline damage and erosion,” said Christine McClure, Water Resources Manager.

Residents are advised to move any belongings away from their shores.

Even with recent rainfall, flooding on river systems is not expected. However, ice movement may cause shoreline damage on inland lakes.

Nuisance flooding and ponding may occur in some areas and residents are reminded to make sure their sump pumps are in good working condition.

A Flood Outlook Statement gives early notice of the potential for flooding based on weather forecasts calling for heavy rain, snow melt, high wind or other conditions that could lead to high runoff, cause ice jams, lakeshore flooding or erosion.

This message will be in effect until (or updated before) Thursday, April 5, 2018
