Lakeshore Flood WarningIssued at 15:05 Wednesday 26 February 2020
* LAKE SHORE FLOODING...North wind gusts of 35 mph and waves of 8
to 11 feet will produce lakeshore flooding on the Cook County
Illinois shore of Lake Michigan, including parts of the Chicago
lakefront. Winds will gradually turn more northwest through the
evening lowering the waves.
* TIMING...Through early this evening.
* IMPACTS...The winds and large battering waves combined with
record high lake levels will exacerbate already significant
beach and shoreline erosion sustained in the past several
months. Vulnerable structures along the shore may be heavily
damaged. The water will likely threaten some roads and low-
lying parks along the lake, as well. Large waves may sweep
onlookers into the lake.
