At 10:20 p.m. Sunday, Indiana State Police issued this report:

Roads throughout the Pendleton District are snow covered as the district continues to receive heavy snow fall.

  • I-70 -Trouble areas are from the 119 mile marker to the 123 mile marker as troopers have worked several slide-offs and property damage crashes through this section. Henry County has received 3-4 inches of snow on this part of I-70 .

As residents prepare to head out for work Monday, Harmeson said they “definitely need to allow extra time” and exercise caution on the roadways.

The snow was forecast to continue through the afternoon with the heaviest snowfall expected to have hit overnight Sunday.

In addition to the possibility of heavy snow causing power outages, the National Weather Service said, wind gusts of 25 to 30 mph could cause drifting and make visibility difficult.

Motorists are urged to drive with caution as roads become slick and snow covered. Visibility was poor Sunday evening, according to reports. Among the slideoffs was a vehicle that went down a ravine off Raible Avenue.

According to the NWS, temperatures will warm up throughout the week, reaching into the 50s by Thursday.
