TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Residents of Lucas County had some complaints for the sheriff on Thursday, as the county continued to remain at a Level 1 snow advisory into the early afternoon. The Lucas County Sheriff’s Office increased that level just after 2 p.m. You can see a full list of those emergency levels here.

Just after 1 p.m. (and ahead of that increase), Sheriff Michael Navarre addressed those complaints on the department’s Facebook page saying, in part, “Currently, most roads in the county are passable.
