Snow Emergency Levels
The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office declares Weather Advisories with input from the Clinton County Highway Department and the Ohio Department of Transportation. Weather Advisories are not meant to inconvenience anyone, but are meant to warn the public of hazardous conditions and enable local road crews to clear the roadways more efficiently. The public is encouraged to tune into local radio stations and/or Cincinnati and Dayton TV networks to obtain Winter Weather Advisories. Please refrain from calling 911 for information regarding Weather Advisories. Weather Advisories are classified as follows: Level 1 – Roadways are hazardous; drive very cautiously. Level 2 – Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow; roadways are also icy. 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. Those traveling on the roadways may subject themselves to arrest.
