Under the leadership of Sherriff Michael Vorhees, the Auglaize County Sherriff’s Office is now utilizing standardized winter road condition advisory levels. Their office shared the levels with me this morning and I felt the information was well worth a share on our city’s Facebook page.
LEVEL 1- Roadways are hazardous due to accumulated snow or ice and may become slippery in spots. Drive Cautiously.
LEVEL 2- Roadways are hazardous due to 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.
LEVEL 3- Roadways are CLOSED to all non-emergency travel due to extremely hazardous conditions. No one should be on the roadways unless it is absolutely essential to travel. Those operating vehicles on the roadway for non-emergency may be subject to arrest.
Please check local media outlets as well as social media for any updates. Thank you, and please be safe!
