(La Porte County, IN) - Roads are snow-covered throughout LaPorte and Berrien Counties this morning.
La Porte County Highway Department Superintendent Duane Werner said the lake effect snow was heaviest from the La Porte area and north and east of the city limits. He estimated anywhere from three to seven inches of snow had fallen in those areas by 6 a.m.
“I think that lake effect band is really kicking in right now,” Werner said.
Werner also estimated two inches or so of snow had fallen in the Westville and Michigan City areas while amounts were less further to the south.
The falling snow was also reducing visibility. Traffic this morning on Indiana 39, for example, was moving at about 30 to 35 miles per hour.
