Lucas County sheriff declares Level 3 snow emergency; emergency traffic only

Lucas County Sheriff James Telb declared a Level 3 snow emergency Wednesday morning for all roads and streets in Lucas County, including state, county, and township roads and all city streets.

This declaration does not apply to traffic on the Ohio Turnpike, but does apply to all other roads in the county.

This means that only operators of public safety vehicles on duty or otherwise responding to an emergency; and essential news media personnel, including reporters, support, and production employees; and health care and other emergency personnel, may drive in the county, according to the sheriff's office.

All others traveling on the roadways might be subject to an arrest.

All public safety employees report to work as scheduled.

This emergency level might be downgraded or discontinued.
