Snow overnight makes Ohio commute messy

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A fresh snowfall overnight in central and southwest Ohio was making the morning commute slow and messy.

Hundreds of schools were delayed Tuesday morning after several inches of snow blanketed the roads. Snow emergencies were declared in rural Pickaway and Coshocton counties, meaning people are discouraged from driving. Hamilton County, home to Cincinnati, also had declared a snow emergency.

Officials are urging commuters to take extra time to get to work and don't follow too closely. Motorists who slid off roads and needed attention were making the situation worse around Columbus and Cincinnati.

Some flight delays were reported.

The snow was expected to move southeast through the day.
