School closures due to power failures

High winds overnight have led to numerous power outages throughout the Golden Horseshoe.

In Port Colborne, the power failures and downed tree limbs have forced the cancellation of the Lions Club food drive which was scheduled for Saturday and is now postponed until next weekend.

The Hamilton Wentworth District School Board has announced two school closures due to power failures. Since there will be a delay in restoring power, the board has announced that Rockton Elementary School (Beverly campus only) and Spring Valley Elementary School will be closed today, November 1st. Childcare is also closed.
