Marshall County Officials Upgrade to Watch Level Travel Advisory

The Marshall County Commissioners and EMA Director Clyde Avery have upgraded Marshall County to a “watch” level travel advisory.

Snow, sleet and freezing rain will affect the morning commute to work and school. Snow covered and icy road conditions will cause hazardous driving conditions. Temperatures will increase in the afternoon which will cause the precipitation to change to rain.

A “watch” level travel advisory means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. Only essential travel, such as to and from work or in an emergency situation, is recommended. Businesses, schools, government agencies and other organizations are encouraged to implement their emergency action plans.

If you must travel, give yourself extra time to get to your destination. Officials urge you to slow down and leave plenty of room between you and the car in front of you.
