Officials have issued a Warning due to road conditions. A Warning means all roadways are closed to non-emergency vehicles and personnel. The Warning is in effect until further notice.
Clinton County Commissioners declared a Level 1 Snow Emergency until further notice. Frankfort Mayor Chris Barnes has done the same for the City of Frankfort. A Level 1 means only emergency vehicles are allowed on the roads. Motorists can be ticketed or, in some cases, even arrested if not in compliance.
The strong storms and high winds that moved through the Greater-Lafayette area earlier brought with them power outages and damage to the southern part of Tippecanoe County.
