Blizzard blasts Boone County

Lebanon — Drivers virtually vanished from Boone County roads Wednesday, apparently obeying the pleading of police officials and weather forecasters, as the first blizzard since 1978 hammered central Indiana.

About 3:30 p.m., the National Weather Service declared the blizzard had reached its end, replacing the blizzard warning with a weather advisory for blowing and drifting snow through 7 p.m. Wednesday.

No crashes involving serious injuries had been reported as of 4 p.m. (See related story this page.)

It was surprisingly quiet, Boone County Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Martin said at mid-afternoon Wednesday.

“The interstate has holiday traffic, but for the most part residents are staying in,” he said.
