Snow emergency elevated

According to the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, the snow emergency level has been elevated to a Level 2.

“The conditions continue to worsen. Snowplows and salt trucks are working hard but struggling to keep up,” Sheriff Jeff Lawless reported on Facebook.

A Level Two Snow Emergency means that roads are hazardous (including primary roads) with blowing and drifting snow a possibility. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be on these roadways. Employees should contact their employers to see if they should report to work.
