UPDATE – The county was bumped back down to Level 1 at 9:30 Friday morning.
The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office upped the county to a Level 2 Road Alert late Thursday night.
Sheriff Heldman said winds were causing snow to drift on top of ice-covered county and township roads.
A Level 2 Road Alert means roadways are extremely hazardous with blowing and drifting snow and/or flooding. Only those who feel it is necessary to travel should be on the roadways.
A Level 3 Road Alert means most roadways are closed and extremely hazardous/flooded. Employees should comply with workplace policies or contact their employer. Violators may be cited.
