The Essex Region Conservation Authority has issued a flood warning for Leamington.

According to a release, southwest winds and record high water levels on Lake Erie are causing flooding along Point Pelee Dr. between Sturgeon Creek and Mersea Rd. 

Wind speeds are expected to drop throughout the day, but high water levels means flooding could continue with lower wind speeds.

Officials are asking residents to avoid the area.

All of Essex County remains under a flood watch.
