Winter storm brings 8 to 10 inches of some areas of southern Illinois


CARBONDALE, Illinois — A winter storm that moved across southern Illinois has brought as much as 8 to 10 inches of snow.

The National Weather Service on Thursday morning said the largest areas, including Carbondale, Herrin and Harrisburg, received between 4 and 6 inches of snow.

The Illinois Department of Transportation showed roadways in the region were either covered with snow and ice or had patches of snow and ice.

The Illinois Secretary of State's office closed ten offices due to bad weather and dangerous roads. Those included Anna and Vienna. They are expected to reopen at 8 a.m. Friday.
