Heavy snowfall and windy conditions make travel hazardous.  Hoosiers should carefully consider if travel is necessary during a weather advisory time. Use a variety of sources to make an informed decision.

One of those sources is the Indiana County Travel Advisory Map. It’s updated with information from the county emergency management agencies and describes the conditions for a travel warning, watch, advisory and caution.

The map is available online at , or on your mobile device by downloading the Indiana Travel Advisory app for iPhone () in the App Store, and Android at , in the Google Play Store.

In addition to the Travel Advisory Map, stay aware of changing travel conditions by monitoring the local news, travel, weather, and social media sites and apps.

If travel is necessary, let someone know your route, expected time of arrival, and how to reach you. Charge your cell phone before leaving. Pack essential items such as high protein snacks, water, first aid kit, flashlight, warm blankets, extra prescription medications and important documents or information you might need during an emergency.

Strong winds could plunge wind chill values to near or below zero.  Hoosiers should limit their exposure by staying indoors. Make trips outside as brief as possible. Wear several layers of loose-fitting clothing, and cover any exposed skin with a hat, scarf, and gloves.

Pet owners should be especially sensitive to their animals’ limits when outside. Be sure to provide a sheltered place for outdoor pets and make sure they have fresh water.
