FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — More snow caused area roads to become slick and hazardous Friday morning, which prompted the Allen County Office of Homeland Security to issue a Travel Advisory.
The Travel Advisory was lifted around 12:45 p.m.
There were numerous reports of crashes and slide-offs throughout Fort Wayne and surrounding areas Friday morning.
Motorists were urged to slow down and leave extra time for the morning commute.
Multiple schools delayed the start of classes. Those schools are listed here.
In addition to slick roads, Bernie Beier, Director of the Allen County Office of Homeland Security, said Friday morning was the second morning there have been multiple reports of vehicles hitting deer. Snow, open fields, less daylight and the hunting season in progress had the deer population very active.
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.”
