Record Water Levels Predicted for Lakes Erie, Superior

Government officials in the U.S. are predicting water levels will surge to record highs in some parts of the Great Lakes over the next six months.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a report Monday saying the lakes have been rising steadily for several years and are getting an extra boost as winter's melting snow mingles with recent heavy rainfall.

The report says levels on Lake Superior and Lake Erie are expected to break records set decades ago.

Records are not predicted for Lakes Michigan, Huron and Ontario, but the Army Core is still calling for a sharp rise in water levels.
