Level Three Emergency Declared

Most areas remain under a level three snow emer­gency. In Defi­ance County, the Sheriff’s Office reports that the level three emer­gency will remain in effect until fur­ther notice, and all county offices are closed today.

At a level 3, all road­ways are closed to every­one except emer­gency per­son­nel. No one should be dri­ving dur­ing these con­di­tions unless it is absolutely nec­es­sary or a per­sonal emer­gency exists. All employ­ees should con­tact their places of employ­ment to see if they should report to work. Those trav­el­ing on the roads may sub­ject them­selves to arrest.

If you don’t have to be on the roads, offi­cials say the best thing to do is to stay warm indoors. If you absolutely must travel, here’s at least one warn­ing…

The Defi­ance County High­way Depart­ment says Holly Road by the Defiance/Paulding County line has been deemed impass­able.

Other roads in the area are also in very treach­er­ous condition.
