Nor’Easter becomes an all too familiar expression as another round of fierce winds raises Lake Erie water levels. Steady readings in the upper teens, and gusts approaching 30 knots, are in the South Bass Island Lighthouse weather record for Wednesday. As night falls around the Bass Islands, the barometer drops and ENE wind continues to batter the eastern shoreline. A Lakeshore Flood Warning is in effect until 8am Thursday, 9 May 2019.
Due to water spilling violently over the island’s shores, Miller Boat Line docked the Put-in-Bay at South Bass Island State Park as a precautionary measure. Afternoon operations were curtailed; as of this writing no report on ferry service for Thursday. Check with Miller Ferry for updates.
