Indiana counties remain under travel advisories

Most of Indiana's 92 counties are still under some level of travel advisory.

INDIANAPOLIS — Most counties in Indiana are under a travel advisory after Monday's winter storm.

As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, all but one of Indiana's 92 counties were still under a travel advisory. Only three are still under a warning and none of those are in the metro area.

Here's what each level of travel statuses means:

  • Yellow: Advisory - The lowest level of local travel advisory means routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas.
  • Orange: Watch - The middle level of local travel advisory means 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.
  • Red: Warning - The highest level of local travel advisory means that travel may be restricted to emergency management workers only. During a "warning" local travel advisory, individuals are directed to:
    • refrain from all travel;
    • comply with necessary emergency measures;
    • cooperate with public officials and disaster services forces in executing emergency operations plans; and obey and comply with the lawful directions of properly identified officers.
