Meanwhile, at around 10 a.m., an SUV slid off Tyler Boulevard near Spinach Road and landed in a retention basin in Mentor.

Police say it was caused by slick, snowy conditions.

The female driver of the SUV was fine, and the SUV was towed from the water.

Police recommended people in that area avoid driving today unless necessary.

A Lake Effect Snow Warning is in effect for Cuyahoga County until Tuesday at 9 a.m., and for Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula counties until Tuesday at noon.
