SNOW EMERGENCY LEVELS
The County Sheriff in Belmont County issues ALL snow levels and has the authority to restrict and even close roads when snow and ice make driving treacherous.
Level One means roads are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow, roads are icy and drivers are warned to be cautious.
Level Two means roads are hazardous, only those who feel it is necessary to drive should do so, and drivers are encouraged to call their employers to verify that they need to report to work.
Level Three means all roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary. Those traveling on the roadways may subject themselves to arrest.
For the latest snow emergency levels, please check with your local news station, on social media, or the Belmont County Sheriff’s Office at (740) 695-7933. DO NOT dial 9-1-1 to ask for the latest snow levels for Belmont County.
Additionally, Belmont County 9-1-1 CAN NOT tell you, or your employer, not to report to work, regardless of the level issued.
