Schools closed, sheriff issues snow emergency

Heavy overnight snow has resulted in the closing of every school district in Medina County and officials declaring the county in a snow emergency.

County Sheriff Tom Miller issued a Level Two snow emergency at 6:30 a.m., advising drivers to take care while on the roads.

“Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow,” the sheriff said in a press release. “Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out on the roadways. Contact your employer to see if you should report to work.”

In addition, Wadsworth officials announced a parking ban early this morning. No vehicle may be left parked on roads until snow plow operations are completed. Failure to abide by the ban may result in parking citations and impounding of vehicle.

Both the snow emergency and parking ban will last until further notice.
