More High Winds For Leamignton Area

The Essex Region Conservation Authority has issued a 'Flood Outlook.'

With winds forecast up to 40 km/hr, ERCA says the area to be potentially impacted by this event is the Lake Erie shoreline in the Municipality of Leamington between Wheatley Harbour and the tip of Point Pelee.

This entire shoreline was significantly impacted by waves during the wind storm event that occurred on April 14-15, 2018.

Many of the shore protection structures and properties were severely damaged and are vulnerable to further damage from additional easterly wind events.

ERCA also says there is the possibility for near shore erosion with wave overtopping and spray.

In the areas of direct wave attack there is also the possibility of further breakwall damage.
