FOX28 Weather Alert

Most of Michiana shut down due to cold and snow


The frigid temps and heavy snowfall is shutting down much of the area today.  Officials are urging everyone to stay indoors.  Do not travel unless you have to go.

St. Joseph and Elkhart Counties, and South Bend, have issued winter weather emergencies.  Travel is officially restricted to emergency personnel only.  Police may ticket cars on the road, if they aren't traveling for an emergency.

Many businesses have closed, many hospitals have shut down everything but emergency services.  Trash service in at least some cities have been postponed, and public transportation (including TRANSPO and South Shore trains) has been suspended.  Many flights at South Bend Airport are canceled and delayed.  You should call any place you are going to before leaving your home, to make sure it is open. 

FOX28 News will update you with more information on road and weather conditions throughout the day, both on air and online.
