FLOOD ALERT ON LAKE DUNMORE

Hi all, Lake Dunmore was about 8” above normal an hour ago and is likely to go higher. The docks that are low to the water are already under water or floating. Any wave action will obviously put docks in danger and shorelines are now extremely vulnerable to erosion. I know it’s the beginning of a holiday weekend but PLEASE consider passing up water sports that create waves and PLEASE encourage your neighbors to do the same.
GMP is aware of the situation and they are running the outlet wide open. Unfortunately, Goshen Dam and Silver Lake are also very high and all that water has to pass through us before it is really gone. More bad news is that we have the potential for more heavy rain today that will only exacerbate the situation.
Jim M, can we make the greeters aware and have them warn incoming boaters?
Can someone please put this on the LDFLA site too. My list doesn’t nearly cover all those that need to know. Thanks, Mike
