Travel Advisories Updated

 Starke County has moved from a Red Travel Warning to an Orange Travel Watch status. That means essential travel, such as trips to and from work, is now allowed. County officials implemented the warning at 4 p.m. yesterday. Emergency Management Agency Director Ted Bombagetti says that gave Starke County Highway Department snow plow drivers room to work before they were pulled off the road at 6 p.m. to rest, and they were able to make tremendous progress clearing roads. Pulaski, Marshall and LaPorte Counties are all under orange level travel watches this morning. Again that means essential travel, such as trips back and forth to work, is allowed. Roads are still very slick, though, so allow ample time to reach your destination if you head out today. County officials will continue to monitor conditions and may adjust travel as necessary.
