Flood warnings have been issued for a number of areas in our community.

There is currently flooding in the community of Lighthouse Cove. There is water around many homes and on several of the roadways, as west winds have caused water levels to rise in eastern Lake St. Clair which has caused water to rise in the canals and spill out.

Waves and wave spray have caused flooding in the rear yards of properties which has run to the front of the properties and is crossing over some roads. Some of the main roads in Lighthouse Cove have water running over them including Tisdelle and Melody. Island Cres has a significant depth of water over the road.

In Leamington, water is over the road on Point Pelee Drive (County Road 33) with the most impacted area being between Sturgeon Creek and Mersea Road 12.

On Pelee Island, the west shoreline continues to be impacted by significant direct wave impact causing accelerated erosion along both West Shore Road and McCormick Road. The Township of Pelee has closed West Shore Road just south of the Ferry Ramp to East West Road as well as McCormick Road south of the waste transfer station.
