Franklin County offices — for non-emergency response personnel — were closed Tuesday, because of the predicted snow fall and road conditions. The county public works department planned to work through the night Monday, plowing snow on the blacktop roads and then start on the gravel roads during the daylight hours Tuesday, the release said.
Emergency management officials warned residents that if they live on a road that is prone to drifting, they might not be able to get out. If they leave their homes, they might not be able to return, because of drifting and blowing snow. Emergency management officials estimated it may take several days to clear all drifted roads in some areas of the county.
