State of emergency declared in Oswego County

News

A state of emergency has been issued in Oswego County due to heavy lake effect snow.

A travel ban for the Redfield-Boylston area in the northeastern part of the county was issued earlier on Friday due to extreme heavy snow. 

However, the state of emergency covers the entire county, as the snow has impacted the towns of Sandy Creek and Orwell and is forecast to move south through Oswego County.

A lake effect snow warning issued by the National Weather Service remains in effect until 7 p.m. Saturday.

Sheriff Reuel Todd has requested no unnecessary travel for the affected areas, as conditions are extremely dangerous.

Vehicles stuck or stranded on the highway inhibit the cleaning and plowing of the highways. Parking lots for snowmobiles in the area have not been cleared of snow and snowmobilers are requested to locate to other areas.
