Level 3 will be Issued

Sheriff Toby L. Spencer announced that at 3:00 PM today, December 26, 2012, Darke County will be on a Level 3 Snow Emergency. This includes the entire county. A Level 3 Snow Emergency means that ALL roadways are CLOSED to non-emergency personnel. No one should be driving during this condition unless it is absolutely necessary or a personal emergency exists. All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Anyone traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.

This release is being issued in advance of the Snow Emergency so that the public will be provided early warning and be prepared to be off the roadways after 3:00 PM today.

Blowing and drifting snow along with near zero visibility has made it difficult for road and street crews to keep roadways clear. The Sheriff’s Office has already received reports of stranded motorists in the rural areas of Darke County.

Thank you for your patience during these severe weather conditions.

Authority Darke County Sheriff Toby L. Spencer
