FLOOD WARNING CANCELED FOR TONAWANDA CREEK

A flood warning for Tonawanda Creek was canceled late Wednesday afternoon after the creek finally returned to its banks after two days of significant flooding in northern Erie and southern Niagara counties.

The warning was called off at about 5:15 p.m. after the creek receded to 11.75 feet. It was continuing to go down and was expected to drop to 11 feet by daybreak today. Flood stage is 12 feet.

The National Weather Service said there is a slight chance that showers and thunderstorms today could bring renewed flood warnings later this week.
