Ohio gets more snow, hazardous driving conditions

By

CINCINNATI (AP) — Many Ohioans are starting to get a break from the snow, but brutal cold is coming right behind.

There was scattered snowfall and central and southeast Ohio roads were under snow emergency conditions urging caution or avoiding unnecessary driving. After new snow of 2 to 8 inches in much of the state Saturday, Sunday's forecasts called for smaller amounts as temperatures begin plummeting. Many areas will be in low single digits or below zero overnight, with gusting winds slapping many areas with wind chills of minus-20 degrees or worse in the mornings ahead.

No utility outages were reported Sunday in the small southwest Ohio city of Trenton, where power losses Saturday left thousands in the dark and cold for hours. The city opened an emergency warming center Saturday evening.
