— About a dozen counties across northern Indiana are asking that everyone
except emergency workers stay off the roads as high winds are causing deep
snow drifts in many areas.
Department of Homeland Security reports all counties in the northern third
of the state are warning drivers of hazardous conditions.
County emergency management director Kristy Clawson says winds gusting to
30 mph at times are blowing rural north-south roads back shut soon after
highway crews get them plowed. She says some spots in the northeastern
Indiana county have had drifts several feet deep.
Clawson says most
people seem to following warnings and staying off the roads.

Pete Buttigieg is asking people not to drive as crews work to keep
up with the drifting.
