Drifting snow causes hazardous conditions in regional communities


Blowing and drifting snow continues to cause dangerous driving conditions in sections of northwest Ohio, including in Hancock, Sandusky, and Seneca counties which remain under Level 2 snow emergencies.

A Level 2 means motorists should drive only if necessary.

In Hancock County, wind is piling up the snow on roadways, and, according to the sheriff s office, there could be a few roads closed.

Roads are hazardous and motorists are being warned to drive carefully in some other northwest Ohio counties under Level 1 snow emergencies, including Lucas and Wood. Some roads in western Lucas County are getting some blowing and drifting snow, according to the sheriff s office Friday afternoon.

A slight chance of snow showers is in the forecast before midnight Friday, and the low is expected to drop to 6 degrees with the wind chill as low as minus 5.

Monroe County road conditions have improved throughout the day Friday; there had been some slick conditions earlier as a result of blowing and driving snow.

Ottawa County had been under a Level 2 snow emergency, but that was canceled at 2 p.m. Friday, and Fulton and Henry counties no longer are under a Level 1 snow emergency.
