Snow emergencies for several counties

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- More than 100 ODOT plow trucks and 63 City of Columbus trucks are out plowing and treating roads as needed.

Temperatures are well below freezing and the wind is strong, which means crews pay special attention to ramps and bridges, which are more prone to freezing.

As temperatures continue to drop throughout the day, ODOT says drivers should slow down and be aware of potential ice that can form without warning. 

Several counties are under snow emergencies now:

Level 1: Athens, Clark, Crawford, Fairfield, Guernsey, Hocking, Knox, Logan, Madison, Marion, Morgan, Morrow, Muskingum, Pickaway, Pike, Ross, Scioto

Level 2: Ashland, Champaign, Coshocton, Perry, Richland

Level 3: None

LEVEL 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Motorists are urged to drive very cautiously.

LEVEL 2: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be very icy. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work. Motorists should use extreme caution.

LEVEL 3: All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be driving during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.
