Snow Emergency Level Definition:

Law enforcement agencies, specifically county sheriffs can only declare a snow emergency and temporarily close roads and streets in their jurisdiction.

Below is a breakdown of what each Level Snow Emergency stands for according to the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness Snow Emergency Classifications.

Level 1 Snow Emergency

Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow.
Roads may also be icy.
Drive carefully.

Level 2 Snow Emergency

Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow.
Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roads.
Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.

Level 3 Snow Emergency

All roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel.
No one else should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists.
All employees should contact their employer to see if they should report to work. Those traveling on the roads may subject themselves to arrest.

    Got a question for the Police Department of Cleveland. Ready Boys and Girls? :Here it comes, wait for it: wait .. for it.. Here it is! Where in the …. are we ALL supposed to park? can’t park in parking lots because they’re PRIVATE parking lots. Can ‘t park on the side walks because we’ll all get a ticket. Answer is…… nowhere! and yet the City of Cleveland actually does expect us to just magically find a spot somewhere in all that snow. when if we are just allowed to keep our vehicles in the spot where they were in the first place then at least some of the gridlock and confusion would be minimized! I would much rather be blocked in by the snowplow than to have to go downtown to retrieve my vehicle and have to spend a fortune giving the city yet more of my money to help with their ( revenue).

  • Bryce says:

    Erie county is level 2!

  • E King says:

    Orrville (Wayne Co) has a parking ban until further notice (info on wqkt.com), and Holmes County has a Level 2 issued.

  • Stacie says:

    Norwalk also has a parking ban in effect.

  • Jujubean says:

    Why don’t you people ban tractor trailers on the highway during road conditions like this? Time to write the bill and start the protest.

    • annom. says:

      guess you dont like your food or clothes. If you use it a truck brings it! The problem isn’t the professional drivers it’s the other idiots around them.

  • Leenie says:

    The tractor trailers help pave the way for us. It’s the idiots in cars trying to pass them while yacking on the phone and other distracting things that cause problems.

  • Amen. I’d rather be by a truck in this weather than an invincible idiot in a car. At least they have 18 wheels keeping them on track.

  • Rose Green says:

    Erie County is a Level 2 NOT 1

  • Delivery truck says:

    If Cleveland has not issued an emergency. Why are Cleveland police officers threatening to write tickets to delivery drivers who have to park in the street. We are just trying to do a job. And where are the plows at? Been in downtown since 7 am. Haven’t seen one yet.

  • Jake working in Beachwood says:

    Beachwood, as usual, had no snow on the main streets. Do they heat their streets or what to make it disappear?
