Lake IN-Porter-
1050 AM CST Wed Feb 26 2020

...LAKESHORE FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 AM CST
THURSDAY...

* LAKE SHORE FLOODING...North wind gusts of 40 mph and waves of 10
  to 14 feet, and even occasionally higher, will produce
  lakeshore flooding along the northwest Indiana shore of Lake
  Michigan.

* TIMING...Through Thursday morning. The worst conditions are
  expected this afternoon and evening.

* IMPACTS...The winds and large battering waves combined with
  record high lake levels will exacerbate already significant
  beach and shoreline erosion sustained in the past several
  months. Vulnerable structures along the shore may be heavily
  damaged. The water will likely threaten some roads and low-
  lying parks along the lake, as well. Large waves may sweep
  onlookers into the lake.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Lakeshore Flood Warning means that flooding is occurring or
imminent along the lake. Residents on or near the shore in the
warned area should be alert for rising water...and take
appropriate action to protect life and property.
