(BEDFORD) – Even before the second round of snow hits central Indiana this afternoon, the majority of the state is under at least one type of travel advisory, according to the map from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security.
Lawrence County is currently under a yellow travel advisory.
Forecasters are estimating the second wave of this storm could bring an estimated 8 to 11 inches of additional snow.
Yellow: The lowest level of the local travel advisory, means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas.
Orange: This means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a “watch” local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended, and emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations.
Red: The highest level of the local travel advisory, means that travel may be restricted to emergency management workers only.
