INDIANAPOLIS -- Travel advisories continue Sunday across several central Indiana counties after a near-record spring snowfall Saturday.
Roads are slippery as the snow and ice melt and create a slushy mix.
Bridges, overpasses and side roads are the main areas seeing issues.
Below is an explanation of each level of travel advisory.
A Travel Warning is the highest level of local travel advisory, means that travel may be restricted to emergency management workers only. During a "warning" local travel advisory, individuals are directed to:
refrain from all travel
comply with necessary emergency measures
cooperate with public officials and disaster services forces in executing emergency operations plans
obey and comply with the lawful directions of properly identified officers
A Travel Watch has been issued in Bartholomew, Brown, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Owen, Putnam and Shelby counties.
A Travel Watch means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a "watch" local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended, and emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations.
A Travel Advisory is the lowest level of advisory and means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas.
