A few counties are under travel advisories.

Another round of winter weather reached the state yesterday with the wind chill into the single digits and a bit of snow on the roads. Police have reported numerous crashes, including some that closed portions of several major highways, including Interstate 70 at several points, I-65 in central and southern Indiana and I-69 south of Fort Wayne.

The weather  has also caused travel advisories within certain counties.

Owen County is under a travel watch, meaning road conditions are dangerous and drivers should only travel for necessary reasons.

Brown, Putnam, Hendricks, Morgan and Decatur counties are under travel advisories, meaning there are no restrictions on travel but INDOT encourages drivers to be cautious.
