(La Porte County, IN) - People are advised to stay home unless they absolutely have to venture out. Six inches or more of snow has fallen and there’s also been some blowing and drifting.
La Porte County Highway Department superintendent Duane Werner says some of the county roads are impassable right now. Werner said it’s going to be awhile before plows reach every road. “We witnessed a lot of drifting overnight. North and south roads and east and west roads. We’ve been out since two o’clock this morning working on them. We’re getting caught up on them but it’s just going to take some time,” Werner said.
Right now, the snow has tapered off and sunshine is beginning to peek through the clouds. Numerous schools are closed as a result of the snow.
