COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Most of Ohio was slammed with another heavy snowfall overnight, closing hundreds  of schools and creating extremely hazardous driving conditions.

Officials were advising people to stay off the roads if possible Wednesday morning as 4 to 7 inches of new snow fell across most of the state and freezing rain was falling on top of it.

Many counties declared snow emergencies. Commuters who must drive were advised to allow extra time to negotiate the slippery roads.

A winter storm warning was in effect until 10 a.m. Wednesday, with ice-storm and flood warnings for the southern sections of the state. The storm was expected to move out by late morning.

Ohio has seen a string of blizzards and frigid temperatures, beginning in early December.
