Hoosiers Hit With Snow, Freezing Temperatures

Last updated on Monday, January 6, 2014

(UNDATED) - Hoosiers are digging out from Sunday’s winter storm.

National Weather Service Indianapolis Meteorologist Mike Ryan says many areas around the state received 10 to 15 inches of snow. Winds gusts have now picked up-causing blowing and drifting snow.

The weather service is also warning of deadly wind chills as low as 45 below zero possible through Tuesday.

Hoosiers are being warned to abide by local travel advisories, avoiding travel if possible.

All counties in East Central Indiana are currently under a "Watch" or "Warning" status, limiting travel to essential or emergency purposes.

The U.S. Postal Service says it will make every effort to deliver mail today despite the snow and bitterly cold temperatures.

Hoosiers are encouraged to help letter carriers by clearing snow and ice from pathways leading to their mailboxes.
