A bout a slushy rain and ice caused havoc for area motorists on Monday with many southern Ohio counties issuing Snow Emergencies.
Pike County was placed under a Level 3 Snow Emergency after many roadways were deemed unsafe. That meant no one other than emergency personnel were allowed out on the roadways. Sheriff Charlie Reader has since downgraded the warning to a Level 2 Snow Emergency. A level 2 designation means roadways remain hazardous, and that only those who feel it necessary should be out on the roadways.
Most of the counties west of Ross County, such as Clinton and Fayette, have saw their snow emergency levels expire.
Ross, Jackson and Pickaway Counties remain under a Level 1 Snow Emergency which means area roadways remain hazardous and that motorists should exercise additional caution.
The wintry mix on Monday has resulted in several postponements and cancellations for Monday evening. You can find the full updated list by visiting our Closings and Delays page HERE.
