Travel, Winter Weather Advisories issued for Allen County

ALLEN CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – A Travel Advisory is in place for Allen County this morning

A Travel Advisory means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas.

The National Weather Service is forecasting 2-4 inches of snow to fall throughout Allen County, Indiana. A Winter Weather Advisory is also in effect for the area through 11 a.m.

The Allen County Department of Homeland Security released the following:

Snow will be wet and heavy creating slushy, slick and hazardous roadways. Even small amounts of heavy snow and slush can make driving difficult with steering and braking. Slow down and give yourself extra space between vehicles.

Power outages are possible as heavy snow accumulates on power lines or causes tree limbs to break and fall into power lines. Treat every downed wire as a live wire.

Shoveling heavy, wet snow can put a big strain on your heart. Take your time. Take breaks. Stay hydrated. Only move small amounts of snow at a time.

Practice Hoosier Hospitality. Give courtesy and have patience with other motorists. Help each other dig out after the snow has fallen.
