Break walls eroding as waves batter shoreline in Town of Wolcott

TOWN OF WOLCOTT (WSYR-TV) - More rain and rising water levels could create a devastating situation for families along Lake Ontario as the waves wash away the shoreline, and potentially the foundations of camps and summer homes.

In the Town of Wolcott, a building on Howland Road is teetering on a dirt ledge over the lake.

Neighbors believe it is empty now. But, it could be a sign of trouble for anyone living in the area.

The front-end of the building sticks out into the air, above a gap where it was once held up by dirt. The waves washed away the soil foundation.

Families on the northern edge of Wolcott, in Wayne County, worry they could face the same threat soon as the rain keeps falling.
