Flood watch for Niagara Falls' Cayuga Island cancelled

The New York Power Authority has cancelled a flood watch for Cayuga Island in Niagara Falls, Mayor Paul A. Dyster has announced on his Facebook page.

The watch remains in effect for the Robert Moses Parkway beneath the north Grand Island bridge.

Flood gauges are two feet below the damage level and falling, Dyster reports.

"[Department of Public Works] crews will continue ice removal efforts today, including helping residents clear their driveways. Ice breakers will remain on duty and power output has not been impacted," the mayor wrote.

City garbage pickup is going on as regularly scheduled, with the city's schools, libraries and senior centers closed.

"We will monitor conditions on Cayuga Creek and the Little River during the coming thaw to check for ice-jam related issues," the mayor wrote.
