HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio — Residents should not drive Tuesday morning unless it is absolutely necessary, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey issued a Level 2 Snow Advisory at about 5 a.m. The Tri-State saw heavy snowfall overnight; snow and ice blanketed the roads by Tuesday morning.

McGuffey issued the advisory for all Hamilton County citizens due to “conditions caused by ice, or blowing and drifting snow that have caused low visibility on county roadways.”

Only people who deem it necessary to travel should use roadways. Employees should contact their employers to determine whether they should report to work.
