Floods Are Sweeping Through New York And Are Devastating Parts Of The State

A heartbreaking set of news to report on, over the past several weeks those living out along the shores of Lake Ontario have experienced a tragic amount of flooding. I’ve personally seen many of our readers tag us in beautiful yet heartbreaking posts on our Instagram, capturing just how devastating the views along our southern shores have been as of late. With no expected drop in the lake’s high water levels to come over the next several weeks, residents living out in Rochester all the way up to Sackets Harbor continue to brace themselves and alter their summer plans as they manage the disastrous situation.

To see an even more drastic view of how devastating this flooding has been for our residents, watch the stunning but tragic footage below captured by Jim Montanus via YouTube:
