Severe Weather & Emergency Information


  • Warnings vs. Watches

            Watch: Severe Weather is possible. Watches are intended to heighten public awareness. Listen to local radio and television or 
            NOAA Weather Radio for additional information. 

            Warning:
 Severe weather is occurring or will occur soon. Be prepared to take action. Warnings indicate imminent danger to life 
            and property to those in the path of the storm.
 

  • Tornado Shelters

            The Danbury Township Hall located at 5972 E. Port Clinton Road, serves as a Tornado Shelter in a pre-storm event when a 
            Tornado Warning has been issued for the area. The Danbury Police Department will open the building if such Warning is issued 
            after regular business hours. The shelter is open until imminent danger has passed. Overnight stay is not provided except in 
            special circumstances, in which a Notice will be posted on the Township Website.

  • Snow Emergency Levels

            Level 1: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Roads may also be icy. Motorists are urged to drive very 
            cautiously.

            Level 2: Roadways are hazardous due to conditions such as ice and blowing/drifting snow. Conditions could change at any time. 
            Drivers should use extreme caution and allow plenty of time for their travel. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be 
            out on the roads. Contact your employer with regard to whether or not you should report for work.

            Level 3: Hazardous conditions such as ice and blowing/drifting snow have caused some roads to possibly be closed. No 
            one should be driving during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel or a personal emergency exists.Contact 
            your employer with regard to whether or not you should report for work.
                    **Special Note: Closure of roads will not be automatic in a Level 3. Closure of roads will be done after evaluation of conditions 
                    and will be declared by the Sheriff. Also, there will be no order for arrest for drivers on the roadways during a Level 3 unless 
                    there would be a declaration of roads being closed. Deputies will utilize current traffic codes should the need arise.
