Residents on Sodus Bay react to damage caused by lake flooding

The International Joint Commission held a conference call on Friday to address the high water crisis along Lake Ontario.

Although there was speculation they would address calls to get rid of plan 2014, the plan to manage the water levels, the IJC has not yet provided details of the meeting.

Meanwhile, people who live and work on the lake face tough decisions.

Waves coming in from Lake Ontario were crashing into the sandbar that separates it from Sodus Bay. The residents on Lake Beach Road are watching the sandbar disappears. Dan McCullough is a resident of Lack Bluff Road, and his dock is underwater, his boat lift is no longer accessible and water is flooding his property.

“The scariest thing is the sandbar that’s behind us here that protects us from the lake. If we get too many flood years like this, it’s gonna be in jeopardy,” said McCullough.

David Fox also lives on Lack Bluff Road, and he is in jeopardy of losing his boat house.
“All these shore properties, the boat house, the docks, the front yards, they’re now going to be come lake front property, said Fox. ” Are they gonna survive these waves? Who knows?”
