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.
