Miami, OK – Schools remain closed in NE Oklahoma

MIAMI, Okla. (AP) About two dozen schools in northeastern Oklahoma remain closed because of icy roads in the region.

School officials in Ottawa, Delaware, Craig, Nowata, Osage, Mayes, and Rogers counties have called off classes for Tuesday after weekend snow.

Emergency management director Glenda Longan in Miami (my-AM'-uh) says primary roads have been cleared but rural roads remain slick.
