The Wednesday (April 3) and Thursday (April 4) afternoon live greyhound racing programs at Wheeling Island have been canceled due to Ohio River flooding.

            The Wheeling area has received massive amounts of rain the last three days, causing road closures, mudslides and cancellations of events throughout the area.

            As of noon Wednesday, the Ohio River was approaching flood stage of 36 feet in Wheeling. The river is expected to crest sometime Thursday evening at 41.7 feet.

            Reports today indicate parts of the racetrack/casino parking lots were taking on water from sewer drain backups.

            It is unknown when live greyhound racing will resume.
