FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO):  Many northern Indiana counties are declaring some sort of travel warning.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is reporting that Allen, Adams, Huntington, Wabash, Kosciusko, Marshall, Fulton, St. Joseph, Starke and LaPorte are all under a Travel Advisory.

A Travel Advisory is, “the lowest level of local travel advisory, 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.”

Both Wells and Noble have been elevated to a Travel Watch.

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.”

The City of Angola released the following statement about the roads: requesting that vehicles be moved from city streets within 24 from 7:00am on 12/12/2016. This request is being made so snow removal can be made by the city of Angola. In the event the vehicle is not moved, a snow emergency violation ticket will be placed on the vehicle. If the vehicle is not moved within 24 hours from when the ticket is placed on the vehicle, the vehicle is subject to impound. Please make sure this ordinance is followed. 

7:15P update from the City of Fort Wayne: The men and women of the Street Department are continuing 24-hour plowing and salting tonight, in an effort to keep the city moving. Crews are concentrating on main arterial roads and connector streets to keep them as clear as possible for emergency vehicles.

Tomorrow, crews will begin plowing neighborhood streets. Residents who have an option of off-street parking should use that parking option to assist crews by allowing them to get closer to the curb as they work in neighborhoods that typically have narrower streets.

Plowing in the more than 400 City neighborhoods should be completed by Tuesday. If there is additional rain or snow tomorrow the plow trucks will move back to the main roads.
