Ice jams are backing up local waterways.
ICE JAM BY ZOO 2
Ice jams are causing flooding issues in the city. This blockage near the Erie Zoo is backing up Millcreek. It was reported around 10 AM today. As you can see the water was rising up from the creek, through the fence and into the picnic table area at the Zoo. Rising temperatures have aided in the break-up of the ice. These circumstances historically can cause flooding for many areas.
