Huron County Sheriff Urges Staying Off Roads

As today’s winter storm continues and the westerly winds have increased, visibility in the open stretches of our county has gotten very bad. Although the snow total thus far hasn’t made the road surfaces too bad, the nearly 50 mph wind is blowing the snow that has fallen so far around to make visibility almost zero in many places.

Conditions Expected To Worsen

In conversation with Huron County Road Commission Manager Neal Hentschl and Emergency Management Director Randy Miller, we believe this situation will continue tomorrow morning. Evening and nighttime will only be worse. Road crews will remain out, and they’re doing what they can to keep intersections clear, as well as keeping an eye on the road surfaces. Regardless today is definitely not a good day to be driving.

Urges Staying Off Roads

With that said, motorists are asked to stay off the open area roads through tomorrow morning unless a situation makes it absolutely necessary for them to travel.
