(Indianapolis, IN) - People are advised not to go on the ice right now. The Indiana Department of Natural Resource says the ice really hasn’t been that thick all season long and temperatures above freezing recently have made what little ice there is even thinner.
Conservation officers say make sure the ice is thick enough before venturing out and don’t go out by yourself just in case you fall in and need help. People are also encouraged to have an ice pick to help climb out of the water just in case the ice breaks underneath you.
DNR says four inches of clear ice is needed to support the weight of one person.
