Counties throughout Indiana are advising motorists to take precautions as a winter storm will impact the state beginning Thursday.

Here’s a brief explainer from the Indiana Dept. of Homeland Security on the different types of travel alerts:
|Advisory (Yellow)||Routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas.|
|Watch (Orange)||Only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended. Emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations.|
|Warning (Red)||Travel may be restricted to emergency mgt. workers only. All other motorists should:
A) refrain from all travel;
(B) comply with necessary emergency measures;
(C) cooperate with public officials and disaster services forces in executing emergency operations plans; and
(D) obey and comply with the lawful directions of properly identified officers.
