The Marshall County Emergency Management Agency has placed Marshall County under a “Travel Advisory” effective immediately.

A Travel Advisory is the lowest level of local travel restrictions. It means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of hazardous situations, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas. Travel advisories are signified with yellow on statewide travel status maps.

Lake effect snow has settled over Marshall County, making visibility difficult during peak snow squalls. Snow rates of 1-2” per hour combined with wind gusts at over 40 miles per hour will make travel more dangerous and cause whiteout conditions. Some areas of the county are forecasted to receive 6 or more inches of snow lasting into early Tuesday morning.

Stay tuned to local media and the Marshall County EMA for future updates – including an eventual return to normal travel status.
