In Ohio, there are three levels of snow advisories for drivers, with a level one being the mildest.
A Level 1 means roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads also are icy. Motorists are encouraged to drive cautiously.
A Level 2 snow emergency means roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads are also icy. Drive very cautiously and you should be only out if necessary.
A Level 3 snow emergency means 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 on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.
Huron County remains under a blizzard warning until 7 a.m. Thursday.
