The Wayne County Emergency Management Agency met recently with representatives from the Highway Patrol, OSU-Wooster, the Wayne County Visitors’ Bureau and the County Health Department to plan for next spring’s Total Solar Eclipse.  The eclipse, which will take place on Monday, April 8th, is the first eclipse of its kind in Ohio since 1806.  The county’s emergency management agency warns that it may bring a large number of visitors and amateur astronomers to Wayne County, creating dense crowds for the event.  Local residents are cautioned to be prepared for heavy traffic and potential cell phone disruptions on the day of the eclipse.  Wayne County residents are also advised to have groceries purchased in the days leading up to April 8th, and if they take medications to have enough so that they don’t need to go out that day.  Wayne County is not on the Center Line for the eclipse, but it is in the zone of totality.
