Put in Bay floodingPut in Bay floodingHigh wind and frothy waves crashed upon the Bass Islands Thursday evening.  Peak northwest gusts at South Bass Island Lighthouse measured 34 knots (39mph), and continuous wind was steady at 29 knots (33mph).  Flooding created hazardous travel toward East Point and on Bayview Avenue near Put-in-Bay Yacht Club.  Boaters at the Crews Nest docks added extra lines for security.  High water also spilled over the seawall at South Bass Island State Park.
