  • Shoreline hazard warning in effect for Lake Ontario as water levels rise

The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) issued a "shoreline hazard warning" with water levles expected to "continue rising until late May or early June".

"Properties along the shoreline and the Toronto Islands which experienced flooding during the 2017 event could begin to experience flood impacts as the water level in Lake Ontario continues to rise".

The warning states that the Lake Ontario water level in Toronto has now reached 75.5 metres, which is just short of the 75.58 metre average water level that observed during flooding on the Toronto Islands in April, 2017.

According to federal government statistics, the TRCA said the current Lake Ontario water level is getting close to 75.5 metres.

To make matters worse, in addition to the widespread rain across the province on Wednesday, east winds gusting up to 60 km/h have heightened concerns for shoreline flooding and erosion particularly on the western end of the lake.

"The thing to remember about lake levels is that they are going to rise sharply, but it isn't a matter of hours. All of the precipitation that falls in the Great Lakes eventually ends up here, as Lake Ontario is the last stop", he said.

Flooding has impacted several Ontario communities, including parts of cottage country.

Residents can also expect to see increased erosion and noticeable changes to beaches in the area.

The shoreline near the Scarborough Bluffs also sustained damage during higher water levels in 2017.

The TRCA issued a shoreline hazard warning for areas along Lake Ontario on Tuesday afternoon.
