According to Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp in a statement, due to hazardous road conditions with very poor visibility in Christian County, Sheriff Kettelkamp has announced snow emergency at Level 2. Level 2 states that roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow and may be icy. This means that only people with real and important needs to be out on the roads and streets should do so. Drivers may be ticketed and vehicles may be towed if abandoned on the roads thereby hindering emergency operations.
Sheriff Kettelkamp also reported that power is out in Taylorville and the Kincaid area. The Christian County Courthouse is also closed today due to the weather conditions.
