Snow Leads to Stay Home Request

(La Porte County, IN) - People in La Porte County are advised to stay home unless it’s absolutely necessary to get out.  The request was made today by La Porte County Commissioner Rich Mrozinski.  He said blowing and drifting is becoming an issue and some cars have become stuck

on roads, preventing snow plows from getting through in places.


“The snow is blowing and drifting back in.  It’s causing a lot of issues.  If you don’t need to be out, you need to stay home and stay off the roads so that we can get the roads opened up and be safe,” Mrozinski said.


La Porte County Highway Department Superintendent Duane Werner said two to four inches of snow came down since yesterday in the La Porte area, but the lake effect snow was heavier toward the Porter County line.  He said the snow was nearly eight inches deep in places like Michigan City, Westville and Otis.


Another four to six inches of snow is in the forecast, with the heaviest to begin sometime tonight.
