UPDATE: The Ohio State Highway Patrol tells AkronNewsNow that the closed section of U.S. 224 in eastern Summit County is once again open.
at 5:27 PM
There's a Frost Advisory in effect for most of Northeast Ohio, including Akron and Canton, from midnight until 9 AM Sunday...
at 3:57 PM
Authorities tell us there are no large vehicles (trucks, etc.), just cars, and no reports of any fatalities in the US 224 crash at 532.
US 224 is still closed due to a 6 car accident at Ohio 532 on Summit/Portage Co. line. East Waterloo Road can be quick alternate.
Er, we meant East Waterloo Road is separate from U.S. 224 between Neal Road and 532.
at 2:43 PM
Oh, and East Waterloo Road is separate from 532 at that point, and can get you around locally...though it's probably somewhat busy.
at 2:42 PM
U.S. 224 ACCIDENT has road closed from Ohio 532 to Neal Road. I-76 would be your obvious east/west alternate.

ABC News says it's too early to call an Ohio Republican presidential winner, but "it's a two man race" (Romney/Santorum, obviously).
at 7:52 PM
Still waiting for Summit County's first absentee results. They're usually in around this time, so it should not be much longer.
at 7:51 PM
