Lake Michigan flood risks lower than 2020

Emergency Management officials in Door and Kewaunee Counties will be able to focus more on COVID-19 responses and less on flooding.  While temperatures are rising and the snowpack is melting, flooding could be less of a threat for those living along Lake Michigan and the bay of Green Bay.  Door County Emergency Management Director Dan Kane says that's due to lower water levels from this same time in 2020.


Kane says the lower lake levels are likely not a fluke.  He points to 100-year data from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers which shows conditions on Lake Michigan may now be moving in the opposite direction.


Kane says the biggest contributors to flooding on Green Bay and Lake Michigan are high winds.
