COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Dozens of schools were closed or delayed in parts of central and southern Ohio as crews continued to work to rid roads of snow and ice from the latest winter storm.

Counties south and southeast of Columbus reported hazardous driving conditions early Monday as remnants of Sunday's storm hung around before moving off to the east.

The conditions were accompanied by bone-chilling temperatures in a winter that just won't end. Wind chills were below zero early Monday in many parts of the state.

The state transportation department has been ordering more salt to help communities, but officials say demand has outpaced supply. They say the state could wind up using nearly twice the average winter amount of 630,000 tons.
