Travel warnings remain for parts of Indiana


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Residents across much of southern and central Indiana are being asked to remain off the roads while cleanup continues from the winter storm that hit the state.

The state Department of Homeland Security reports early Thursday that more than 30 counties have travel warnings or watches in effect, restricting travel to emergency personnel only or for only essential trips.

Authorities say blowing snow continued to cause problems after the snowfall ended Wednesday.

The National Weather Service reported the heaviest snowfall of about a foot in the Bloomington area. Evansville had 7.7 inches of snow, with 7.3 in Indianapolis for the city's deepest snowfall since January 2009.

The storm was less severe further north as 2 to 4 inches fell in the Fort Wayne and South Bend areas.
