BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says if the ice on eastern Lake Erie continues rapidly diminishing, the ice boom could be removed next Monday.

Officials conducted a flight over the lake on Wednesday and found 399 square miles of ice coverage remains. The minimum required for the Corps to have the ice boom removed is 250 square miles.

Another flight is scheduled for Monday, April 28. Officials say if the ice quality continues to rapidly diminish, the ice boom may be able to be removed that day.
