Ohio remains on high terror alert. Ohio’s homeland security task force say the state will evaluate the state’s terror threat level day-to-day. Governor Taft followed the lead of the federal government last Friday in raising the security alert to its second-highest level: to “orange “ from “yellow”. State officials say the national intelligence on the potential for terror attacks included no specific threats against Ohio. The heightened security includes increased patrols around Ohio’s six largest cities and adding more troopers in state buildings.
