Hundreds of northwest Ohio schools and businesses are closed Wednesday with all counties under Level 2 or 3 snow emergencies.
Lucas County re-issued a Level 3 snow emergency just after 9 a.m. Sheriff John Tharp had lowered the emergency level to 2 at 5 a.m. Heavy snowfall and continued treacherous road conditions forced him to raise the county to a Level 3 once again.

A Level 3 snow emergency means only emergency and essential personnel are allowed on roadways. Other motorists may be subject to arrest. A Level 3 snow emergency extends to all state, county, township roads and all city streets.
