INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Emergency managers kept travel advisories posted Saturday for most southern Indiana counties following a winter storm that dumped more than 10 inches of snow on some locations and contributed to the deaths of two motorists.

All but three Indiana counties bordering the Ohio River had travel advisories or more serious travel watches in place Saturday evening, and one, Crawford County, was under a travel warning, restricting travel to emergency management workers only. In all, 31 counties posted travel advisories of various levels.

The advisories likely kept many people off the roads. No major travel incidents or other problems were reported Saturday.

The National Weather Service reported 11½ inches of snow had fallen since Thursday in Pike County, northeast of Evansville, and some locations had estimated snow depths close to 13 inches.

The weather service said some light snow showers were possible Sunday over parts of Indiana, with mixed precipitation across south central Indiana. Freezing drizzle was possible Sunday night over parts of northern Indiana, it said.
