Travel advisories lifted around area after winter storm

Local News

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Winter weather Travel Advisories were issued for counties around northeast Indiana after a winter storm Monday into Tuesday.

Allen, Jay and Kosciusko counties were all placed under Winter weather Travel Advisories, while Wabash County was placed under a winter weather Travel Watch.

All counties were cleared by Tuesday afternoon, though Kosciusko’s advisory remained.

According to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, a travel advisory is the lowest level of a local travel advisory. It means that “routine or travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas.”

A travel watch means that “conditions are threatening to the safety of the public.” During a “watch” local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended, and emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations.
