OLCOTT, N.Y. (WIVB) – Homeowners along the Lake Ontario shoreline are still dealing with flooded yards and basements.
They’ve been dealing with the same issues for weeks.
Water levels reached record highs along the Lake Ontario shoreline this May.
“We had a major flood here- we were worries about the house caving in, the bird dam breaking down, the marina going away- it was really bad,” Olcott resident John Ralicki said.
The flooding stopped but the water has been receding slowly.
“It’s on the right way, it’s going down, and we’re thankful for that,” Ralicki added.
The water level should be below the break wall as soon as next week, Niagara County Emergency Services said.
