There is a flood watch in effect until 5 p.m. Thursday.

The Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA) says the watch in effect for the Lake Erie shoreline because of strong winds expected tonight and tomorrow.

Winds are expected to increase in speed this evening out of the south, shift southwest, and eventually west - meaning risks of flooding and accelerated erosion for the Lake Erie shoreline including Pelee Island.
