LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has partially activated the state's Emergency Operations Center due to severe winter weather including heavy snow and predictions of dangerously low temperatures.
The governor's office says the partial activation Sunday night means that key emergency management personnel from essential state agencies will report to the center, bolstering coordination with local officials. They're available to respond to local request for assistance.
Many state offices are closed Monday, including those in Lansing. Snyder says that residents should heed advisories to stay off the roads if possible.
