INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 12, 2016) – As another blast of snow hits central Indiana, several counties have issued travel advisories.

A yellow travel advisory is the lowest level of local travel alert. It means that weather conditions could restrict routine travel or other activities. Drivers should use extra caution in those areas.

More than two dozen Indiana counties currently have a yellow travel advisory in place, including Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Madison and Shelby counties in central Indiana.

Tipton County was under an orange travel watch. That classification means travel conditions are threatening public safety. Only essential travel is recommended, such as to and from work or emergency travel.
