Lawrence County Under Orange Travel Status

(BEDFORD) – The Lawrence County Commissioners this morning issued a travel advisory for Lawrence County.

It’s recommended if you’re in a county under “travel warning” only travel if it’s absolutely necessary. People are advised to travel only if it’s an emergency, otherwise, avoid all travel and stay home.

The county is currently under an orange travel status.

An orange travel status is issued when conditions threaten the safety of the public. 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.

The hardest-hit areas of snow remained across the southern third of the state with isolated spots topping 5 plus inches. Bedford recorded 5.5 inches of snow.

According to weather forecasters, this system is now pulling east and should bring an end to flurries/snow before noon today.

Clouds will hang most of the day with perhaps a bright spot or two, while temperatures struggle to reach the upper 20s this afternoon.

Wintry mix, including sleet and freezing rain, could begin falling late Wednesday morning and will pick up in the afternoon with one to 3 inches of snow and sleet predicted for Southern Indiana.
