Streets have been partly cleared in the Bloomington square.

Many Indiana counties remain under some form of travel restriction following Wednesday‘s snow storm.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security reports two counties are under a Travel Warning, meaning travel could be restricted to emergency personnel only. Those include Greene and Owen counties.

Those counties under a Travel Watch, meaning only essential travel for work or emergencies is recommended, include Bartholomew, Brown, Daviess, Decatur, Jennings, Johnson, Monroe, Parke, Pike, Putnam, Shelby, Sullivan and Vigo counties.

And the counties under a Travel Advisory, where restricted travel is recommended include Hendricks Howard Jackson Marion Martin Morgan Orange, and Ripley counties.

Meteorologists say some areas of the state reached blizzard criteria late Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service says a blizzard is by definition visibility less than a quarter mile, winds above 40 miles an hour and considerable falling and blowing snow.

The hardest hit areas were generally from southwest Indiana thorough the south side of Indianapolis and over into East Central Indiana. Those regions had reported snowfall totals of 10 to 12 inches.
