The Milwaukee County Parks Department is preparing the Lakefront for expected impacts from Hurricane Sandy.

According to the National Weather Service, gale to storm force winds gusting to between 45 and 60 mph are expected over Lake Michigan tomorrow with windy conditions along the lake shore and gusts to about 40 mph from Sheboygan to Milwaukee and Kenosha. Dangerous high waves of 14 to 18 feet are anticipated.

“This storm won’t have the same impact here as it will on the East Coast but we are expected to feel the effects and we plan to be as prepared as possible,” County Executive Chris Abele said.

The Parks Department is setting up snow fencing along Bradford Beach to keep sand from blowing onto Lincoln Memorial Drive. Workers are also preparing structures along the Lakefront for the expected storm.

There will be media availability today at Bradford Beach at 12:30pm.
