CLEVELAND (AP) - Snow has tapered off in Ohio, where a storm left up to 10 inches on the ground and contributed to a highway pileup involving as many as 20 vehicles.
A lake effect snow warning was extended until 7 p.m. Tuesday in seven northeast Ohio counties. Forecasters say areas could get up to 3 more inches of snow.
The National Weather Service says Ashtabula County was left with up to 10 inches on Monday. Areas near Cleveland had 6 inches or more on the ground.
Though snow was lighter elsewhere in Ohio, authorities say it was a factor in numerous crashes. The State Highway Patrol says 15-20 vehicles were in a pileup Monday afternoon on Interstate 77 in southeast Ohio. Three people were hospitalized with injuries not life-threatening.
