Sustained high winds and frequent gusts over 50 mph piled up water on the eastern side of Lake Erie pushing volumes of water into the Niagara River and Black Rock Canal.


The sluice pipes under the Bird Island Pier walkway drain the Black Rock Canal of the overflow.













As seen from LaSalle Park, the following two images show the breakwaters under siege.

In this shot, its looks as if the windmills could be driving the water.
