OSHP Ready To Help During Snow Storm

With northwest Ohio in line to get a foot or more of snow from Wednesday through Thursday, the Ohio State Highway Patrol will be busy helping out.

Sgt. Ryan Purpura, with the Bowling Green Post, says troopers will be helping stranded motorists and keeping an eye on road conditions.

If they come across a section of roadway that’s bad, the trooper will contact the Ohio Department of Transportation and let them know it needs attention.





He reminds drivers that road alerts will be issued by your local sheriff’s office, and a level 3 means roads are very hazardous and are closed to non-emergency personnel.

Sgt. Purpura says to make sure your vehicle has plenty of gas in case you get stranded.

And always have an emergency kit in your car that includes a flashlight and batteries, blankets, a first aid kit, bottled water, non perishable food and a snow shovel.
