Pence orders Indiana government offices closed

INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Mike Pence has told all state government offices to close Monday because of the expected severe weather, but has told essential personnel to report to work to ensure public safety and critical services are available.

Pence says he issued the order because he wants to help keep people off the roads and out of the extreme cold. Pence’s announcement early Sunday evening followed earlier announcements that the General Assembly postponed the opening its 2014 session Monday and that state appellate courts, including the Indiana Supreme Court, will be closed.

The state is bracing for an Artic air blast expected to bring wind chills of up to 45 degrees below zero through Tuesday. Authorities in many Indiana counties are warning residents to stay off the roads because of unsafe conditions.
