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.
First star Oliver Castleman scored a goal and added three assists as the IceDogs topped the Mississauga Steelheads 6-3 at the Meridian Centre. On a night of firsts, Philip Tomasino scored his first in the OHL and Elijah Roberts netted his first in a Niagara uniform.
IceDogs first year forward Philip Tomasino has been selected to represent Canada at the World Under 17 Challenge in Dawson Creek and Fort St. John B.C. A total of 66 CHL players will be divided into three teams wearing Canada's colours from November 5-11.
Trailing 4-1 after one, the IceDogs scored three unanswered in the second then held off a furious Erie attack in the third before falling 5-4 in overtime. The Dogs picked up a possible 7 of 8 points, completing a string of four consecutive road games.
