ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — More help is coming to those who live along the lakeshore.

The Army Corps of Engineers is getting $91M in federal funding to help complete projects along Lake Ontario and Lake Erie.

The funding will supplement the nearly $25M from President Trump's 2020 budget.

This comes amid growing fears that flooding this spring could be worse than what we saw in 2017.

Sodus Point has already issued a state of emergency to help prepare as the water level for Lake Ontario is already six inches higher than this time last year.
