He said traffic needs to stay off the road to make way for emergency and snow removal vehicles."This is going to be a long drawn-out storm," he said.According to The Weather Channel, the Ohio River Valley is expected to receive six inches of snow through Tuesday night.

“Every truck, pick-up, everything we have is out,” part-time county road department employee George Franklin said Monday morning.

Franklin said road crews began plowing the 380 miles of county roads at 7:30 a.m. this morning.

“The wind is the main culprit now,” Franklin said, adding that drifts may be a problem for drivers and road crews.
