Lake Erie water levels have risen to a near record high, causing flood concern for nearby homeowners.

Cleveland.com reports Lake Erie’s last reading put the body of water at 574 feet (175 meters), just 7.3 inches (19 centimeters) shy of an all-time high in 1986.

Environmental officials say heavy rains and months of melting snow are responsible for the recent hike in water levels. They say high water levels will surge even more if strong storms continue to drench the region.

Residents with lakefront properties say they’ve lost patios and staircases due to the rising water and subsequent flooding.

A long hose to Lake Mead would work.

If the water level was even higher in 1986, why in the world did they later build stairways and patios below that level ?

Except this time, the army corp of engineers scre*** the pooch with their 2014 plan. So there’s something new in play and it ain’t climate change.

The authors didn’t complete their research or purposely deceived their readers. There is no mention of the US-Canadian commission on water levels and their “2014 Plan” that changed things and has been upsetting residents around the lakes.

It was only a few years back that Great Lakes water levels were near record lows that were blamed on global warming.

If a bear does something in the woods, I wonder if these ass hats would blame it on global warming?

Is that not the polluted sewer that caught fire sometime in the not so distant past?


To: repentant_pundit

Positively eerie…

Anyone say “global warming” yet?

That would be Cleveland’s Cuyahoga River. Lake Erie’s pollution was pretty bad in the 60s. It does have periodic algae blooms but for the most part it’s healthy now.

Has there been more than the usual ice cover in the winter? I remember the winter of 2013 being especially cold, and Lake Superior almost froze over completely. That raised the water level as more water was prevented from evaporating for a few months.
