COLUMBUS, Ind. — Bartholomew County is now at an watch travel level, said Dennis Moats, director of Bartholomew County Emergency Management.
This means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public, he said.
During a local travel watch, 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, Moats said.
Columbus police are reporting this morning that city streets are sno- covered and slick.
"Highways and interstate 65 are snow-covered as well," said police spokesman Lt. Matt Myers.
The Columbus Street Department is out plowing and treating streets, but progress has been hampered by snowfall and blowing snow, Myers said.
Local police have been working multiple accidents and slide-offs, he said.
