Freezing rain causes outages, closings, etc.

Van Wert independent

Freezing rain hit Van Wert County, with several hundred people without power in the city and rural county areas — some of whom were still without power Tuesday morning.

County schools also closed for the second day this week because of inclement weather, while Brumback Library announced this morning that its main branch in Van Wert won’t open until 1:30 p.m., due to a planned outage that will have power off until then, while its other five branches will open at 1 p.m. today because of icy road conditions in rural areas.
