Solar Eclipse Information and Viewing Guidelines

March 26, 2024 - 9:13am --

Where will you be on April 8 for the Solar Eclipse?  The media has shared many stories and there’s a lot of planning by our emergency management officials and the communities to make sure that we are prepared for a huge influx of visitors.  According to the Ohio Emergency Management Agency, total solar eclipses occur roughly every 1.5 years somewhere on Earth. Since the founding of the United States, only 21 total solar eclipses have crossed the lower 48 states.
