Lake Ontario levels higher

January 19, 2018 08:05 AM

Lake Ontario is about nine inches higher than it was last year at this time, but the International Joint Commission says it isn't worried. 

In a question-and-answer news release, the IJC points to previous years when the lake was at this level in January without consequences.

A spokesperson for the IJC told there are "no obvious lessons of things that need to be done differently."

Whether there will be flooding is dependent on the rainfall.
