CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald is hosting a roundtable discussion today to talk about how to respond to local emergencies involving Lake Erie, and we'll be covering it live.

County officials organized the event after a toxic algal bloom on Lake Erie near Toledo contaminated the city's water supply for days earlier this month.

Officials will discuss the background of the Toledo situation, as well as go over what can be done to prepare if something like that were to happen near Cleveland.
