Businesses reopen after disaster emergency lifted


Local businesses are anxious for things to return to normal.

Travel restrictions have kept workers and potential customers at home.

That means one thing; a loss in revenue.

Kyle Hannon, President of the Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce, says business owners were starting to get worried.

"There was some concern that if it had dragged on another day or two, there were going to be some serious issues. So glad they go the roads clear, glad they're relatively safe," says Hannon.

It's not just retailers who were concerned.  Local manufacturers also had to slow down or stall production when the travel restrictions were in place.
