News

HAMLIN, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Many people living along the southern shoreline of Lake Ontario, in Western New York, remain under a state of emergency as water levels there continue to rise.

A video shot from the Rick Davis’s home shows the his lakeside deck already destroyed by the rising water.

The Davis’s say they have already lost about 10 feet of shoreline just this week alone.

The home is elevated, but they are worried that it is in danger of falling into the lake as their backyard continues to erode away.
