Record High Great Lakes Water Levels
According to the Lansing State Journal, some Great Lakes reached record high water levels in June, lapping up beaches and creeping toward Michigan's coastal towns dependent on lakeside tourism.
Lakes Superior, Erie, Ontario and St. Clair set record high monthly average water levels last month. Lake Michigan and Huron, technically one body of water, was within an inch of its June record.
The lakes may continue to rise. June marked the third consecutive month above average precipitation across the Great Lakes region. That could lead to coastal flooding and shoreline erosion, especially during storms.
Lake Superior is expected to rise 3 inches by August 5th. Lake Michigan and Huron could rise 2 inches by that date. Please click on the above link for more information.
