Blizzard Warning for Illinois and Indiana

Indiana county map showing February 24, 2016's blizzard warning, winter storm warning, winter weather advisory, and wind advisory

Counties in eastern Illinois and northwestern and northern Indiana are currently under a BLIZZARD WARNING. This Blizzard Warning in both states is actually expected to expire soon at about 10 PM Eastern time and 9 PM Central time (let's hope!). In Illinois, this warning is affecting these counties: Champaign, Coles, Cumberland, Douglas, Edgar, Effingham, Ford, Iroquois, Kankakee, Moultrie, Piatt, Shelby, and Vermilion. In Indiana, this warning is affecting these counties: Benton, Fulton, Jasper, Lake, LaPorte, Marshall, Newton, Porter, Pulaski, Saint Joseph, Starke, Warren, and White. For an updated map and more information, visit the National Weather Service's site at

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security has a County Travel Status map (might not show up correctly in Google Chrome) to update drivers on whether or not they should refrain from driving in severe wintry weather. In the Northwest Indiana counties (from north to south) of Lake, Porter, Jasper, Newton, Benton, White, and Warren, drivers should refrain from driving on the hazardous roads to make it easier for ambulances, snowplow trucks, etc. to travel when necessary.
