The City of Windsor and Windsor Port Authority are advising extra caution be taken by anyone enjoying the Detroit River shoreline or who plan to be boating during Fireworks Night, June 24, 2019.
Extremely high water levels are creating some dangerous conditions:
- The water is much deeper than normal near the shoreline;
- The water is much colder than normal;
- The water is moving more quickly than normal;
- Obstructions near the shoreline that would normally be visible may be hidden below water now, including docks, rocks and pilings.
Everyone near or on the water is asked to use extra caution to ensure their night is safe and enjoyable.
