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.
Colton Incze stood on his head, making 40 saves Saturday night, as the IceDogs fell 3-1 in Barrie. The game’s first star had to make 18 saves in the second period alone.
A night of deflections went the way of the visitors as the IceDogs fell 6-3 to visiting Owen Sound. In the 'Dogs first game in a 6 game in 9 days stretch, the home side was unable to hold a third period one goal lead.
The IceDogs could not repeat Saturday's third period magic falling 2-0 Sunday afternoon in Windsor. The game's only two goals came in the last eleven minutes of play.
