...LAKESHORE FLOOD WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM SUNDAY TO 1 PM EST
MONDAY...

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a Lakeshore
Flood Warning, which is in effect from 4 PM Sunday to 1 PM EST
Monday.

* LOCATIONS...Lake Ontario shoreline in Oswego and Jefferson
  counties.

* LAKE SHORE FLOODING...Powerful southwest winds will gust up to
  75 mph from Sunday morning through late Sunday night. Winds of
  this magnitude will result in significant wave action, along
  with water rises and ice movement on the eastern end of Lake
  Ontario.

* TIMING...From 4 PM Sunday to 1 PM EST Monday.

* IMPACTS...The combination of water rises and extreme wave action
  will result in lakeshore flooding. Some locations which tend to
  be vulnerable are Sandy Pond, Black River Bay, Chaumont Bay, and
  the Thousand Islands Region of the Saint Lawrence River. There
  is ice in place across northeastern Lake Ontario extending to
  the Saint Lawrence River. It is likely that higher lake levels
  and waves will break up the ice. Ice blocks will get pushed
  onshore.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Lakeshore Flood Warning means lakeshore flooding is occurring,
is imminent, or is expected to occur. People in the warning area
should take immediate action to protect life and property. Listen
to local radio...television...or NOAA Weather Radio for further
information.
