TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Schools and universities across Ohio are canceling classes again because of the deep freeze that has enveloped the state and other parts of the Midwest.
The University of Toledo, Case Western Reserve University, the University of Akron and Bowling Green State and Youngstown State universities were among those canceling classes for a second day Thursday.
Ohio State University canceled classes scheduled to start before 11 a.m. Thursday at its Columbus campus, but said classes beginning at 11 a.m. or later would proceed.
Classes in many public school districts around the state were called off for a second day.
Several cities were keeping warming centers open for those seeking shelter from the cold.
The National Weather Service forecast slightly higher, but still-dangerous temperatures and wind chills for Thursday.
