Boater advisory issued for Seneca and Cayuga Lakes after widespread flooding

The Seneca County Sheriffâ??s Office wants to warn boaters who may be heading to Seneca and Cayuga Lakes this weekend.

A Boater Advisory has been issued for the lakes, as the recent severe storms and flooding have caused a larger-than-normal amount of runoff emptying into the lakes and canal, including trees and other floating debris that can be partially submerged. This debris can be incredibly dangerous to boaters.
