SPRING LAUNCH 2017 HAMPERED BY HIGH WATER
Heavy rains throughout April have caused unusually high water levels throughout the Lower Great Lakes and St. Lawrence region.
Among our collection so far are a few before and after photos to give some indication of how much of a change has occurred.
Flooding is not expected to peak until the middle of June as swollen creeks and rivers continue to drain into the Lakes Erie and Ontario.
Feel free to forward any photos you may have showing us what conditions are like wherever you are and we will add them to our collection.
