Much of Northeast Ohio, including Cuyahoga County, is under a Winter Weather Warning today, Tuesday, Dec. 1, and the snow may continue into Wednesday. Several inches of snow have already fallen, causing downed trees and power lines in some locations in the city. Below is information about local services that may be impacted by the severe weather:
ROAD CLOSURES: The city is using social media accounts and Nixle to residents notified of any road closures that may occur as a result of the weather. Earlier closures on Columbia Road and Bradley Road have since been cleared. Residents can receive real-time updates from Nixle by texting their zip code to 888777 or by following the City of Westlake's Facebook page or the Westlake Police Facebook page.
TRAFFIC LIGHTS: If you come to an intersection with a traffic light that is out or has blinking red lights, treat it as a four-way stop.
POWER OUTAGES: If you experience a power outage, contact First Energy online to report the issue. DO NOT contact the Service Department or the WPD as they do not have any control over these types of issues. You may report an outage by using this link.
RUBBISH/RECYCLING COLLECTION: Rumpke workers are doing their best given the current weather conditions to provide collection services. Some carts have fallen over due to snow and some bulk/excess trash may be buried in snow. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.
