Snow emergencies issued in area counties


The snowfall from the weekend and blowing snow conditions prompted several area counties to issue snow emergencies.

These are the current alerts in effect:

LEVEL ONE:

  • Butler County
  • Clark County
  • Greene County
  • Wayne Co., Ind.
  • Randolph County, Ind. is under a travel watch.*
  • Champaign County

LEVEL TWO:

  • No counties listed

LEVEL THREE:

  • No counties listed

IMPORTANT NOTE: Shelby and Auglaize counties do not issue snow emergencies.

Snow emergencies mean the following:

LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads are also icy. Drive very cautiously.

LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roadways. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.

LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. However, those traveling on the roadways may subject themselves to prosecution.

 

*A Travel Watch means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a "watch" local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended
