UPDATE: St. Joseph Co. extends weather emergency

Posted:

St. Joseph County, IN is under a state of emergency, and will remain so through Tuesday.  That from a release sent out Monday at 4:00pm.

St. Joseph County offices and courts, along with South Bend city office will be closed Tuesday as well. 

The level three travel restriction, limiting travel to emergency personnel only, will remain in effect until Noon on Tuesday.  Citizens are directed to refrain from all travel, comply with necessary forces in executing emergency operations plans, and comply with the directions of properly identified officers.

St. Joe County Police have issued two citations, so far, for violations of the travel restriction.  Lt. Matt Blank says they aren't out there looking to pull people over and cite them for violations, but if you are out and about and "cause a problem" you could wind up with a fine of up to $2,500.  For example, if you get stuck or cause an accident, and don't have a good reason for being out, that would qualify.
