The Town of Lakeshore is dealing high water and water on roadways in Lighthouse Cove is due to the wind and flow from the Thames River.

The Federal Dock is closed off and some roads in the area are reduced to one lane and barricades have been installed. Pickled sand has been applied in these areas to help with traction due to forecasted freezing temperatures.

Sand and 1,000 sandbags have been delivered to the Lion’s Park in Lighthouse Cove for residents to protect their homes.

The town is asking the public to take extra caution and avoid the water. The combination of slippery banks and fast-moving cold water can be dangerous. Standing water can also present unseen hazards. Children and animals should be kept away from the water.

As flood waters recede, they are asking residents to attempt to ensure that catch basins and other drainage works are free of debris and can function properly. Debris and other waste left behind from the flooding should be properly disposed of rather than thrown back in the river.
