Ohio Suburbs Expected to Wait Several Days for Supplemental Salt
DOWNTOWN COLUMBUS (Chris Vanocur/Kate Liebers) -- Suburbs waiting for the state's emergency supply of salt may have to be patient.
A few days ago, state officials said they ordered hundreds of thousands of tons of salt to compensate for that lost during the extreme weather events this season. The salt was to be distributed to certain areas in central Ohio that were running low on their own supplies.
The order may not arrive for a week or so, but that delay doesn't seem to be inciting panic.
"This salt that we have currently would be enough to get us through this weekend," said Megan Canavan, the City of Powell spokesperson. "However, if we do not get the order that we've placed, then we would be running very low."
Salt hasn't been particularly easy or cheap to come by this season, as the severity of the storms have amplified the demand for salt.
