Huron County Sheriff Dane Howard reduced the snow emergency to a Level 1 this morning.

In Ohio, there are three levels of snow emergency, with Level 1 being the mildest. Here the definitions of each level:

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

Level 2 - Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow and/or ice cover. Only those who believe it is necessary to drive should be on the roadways. Contact your employer to determine if you should report to work. Motorists should use extreme caution.

Level 3 - Roadways are closed to all non-emergency travel due to extremely hazardous conditions. No one should be on the roadway unless it is absolutely essential to travel or a personal emergency exisits. Contact your employer to determine if you should report to work. Those operating vehicles on the roadway for non-emergency reasons may be subject to arrest.

Howard issued a Level 3 early Tuesday morning. It was reduced to a Level 2 later in the morning and stayed at that level the rest of the day.
