GREECE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say hundreds of homes along Lake Ontario's southern shore in western New York have been hit by wind-driven flooding.

Officials in Monroe County says high winds over the weekend sent waves crashing over breakwalls and onto properties in the neighboring towns of Parma and Greece, just west of Rochester.

Homeowners spent the weekend filling and stacking sandbags around their homes. Sections of Edgemere Road that run along the lake in Greece have been closed because of minor flooding.

The National Weather Service has issued flood watches and warnings for the entire Lake Ontario shoreline from the Niagara River to the St. Lawrence River.

Officials say a rainy April has pushed the lake's water level about 20 inches above average.
