Heavy snow closes schools, city offices

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Travel has been snarled across Indiana as crews clean up from heavy snowfall or freezing rain in much of the state.

Most counties across Indiana are asking people to restrict their travel and many schools, universities and government offices have closed for the day or delayed their Wednesday openings. Boone County is still on a orange travel status, which means only essential travel, such as to and from work, is recommended.

In Boone County, all three school systems are closed Wednesday as well as Lebanon city offices. The Boone County Courthouse is open.

The National Weather Service reports about 7 inches of snow in Indianapolis and Terre Haute, with more than 8 inches in Fort Wayne. The heaviest snowfall reported has been nearly 10 inches in western Indiana's Parke County.

The state's northern and southern counties had 2 to 3 inches of snow in many places. Much of southern Indiana had freezing rain at times, which has caused slick roads and some power outages.
