NPCA warning of high water levels in Hamilton and Haldimand
The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority warning of high water levels in areas around Hamilton and Haldimand County.
The NPCA says east portions of those areas have already received 35 to 60 mm of rain over the last 24 hours.
The rain has resulted in higher than normal water levels and flows.
Water levels however remain below the critical threshold.
Residents living along the upper portions of the Welland River, 20 Mile Creek, and 4 Mile Creek, especially in the Wellandport, Smithville, and Virgil areas, are
encouraged to closely monitor river conditions and watch for flooding in low lying areas.
The Niagara IceDogs have named Joey Burke as the team’s third General Manager in their history. Burke will continue to work with coach David Bell utilizing talents and contacts in building the IceDogs talent base.
Akil Thomas of the IceDogs was named today to the OHL's All-Rookie team. Thomas was selected as the first team right winger, garnering more votes than any other first year player.
The IceDogs made 5 selections Wednesday night in the first ever Under 18 Priority Selection event. While the traditional Priority Selection draft is dominated by Minor Midget hockey players, the Under-18 draft is to identify "late bloomers" from the Major Midget hockey ranks.
