The Essex Region Conservation Authority has issued a Shoreline Conditions Statement for Lake St. Clair.

According to a release, high winds out of the north-northeast are expected to hit the region Thursday and Friday with gusts over 50km/h.

The combination of high lake levels and high winds could result in flooding and shoreline erosion.

ERCA is encouraging residents to take extra caution in areas where flooding is occurring.

The authority says the high winds are expected to dissipate by 9am Friday morning.
