As Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul surveyed the flooding along Little Sodus Bay Monday, she was approached by a homeowner who’s been impacted by the rising water levels.
Peter Klein has a home on Lake Street in Fair Haven. The property is in a low-lying area along the shoreline, which made it vulnerable to flooding when Lake Ontario reached its highest recorded levels.
Klein’s home looks like a makeshift fort. He said there are 4,000 sandbags protecting the structure from the rising water. Outside the property, his dock is submerged.
