Many Digging Out From Heavy Snowfall

The huge winter storm system that dumped as much as a foot of snow on parts of Indiana is moving eastward and out of the region.

The heaviest snowfall has been recorded in central and western Indiana, but there have been significant accumulations in counties closer to the Ohio River and in far western Kentucky.

Much of Indiana was under a blizzard warning today as the blowing, drifting snow came at a pace of three inches per hour in some places. The winter weather snarled traffic and left hundreds of travelers stranded at the Indianapolis International Airport.

About 100 Indiana National Guard troops were activated to help police rescue stranded motorists and check on shut-ins.

The Louisville Metro area has been just below the edge of the storm system, with accumulations of less than one inch.
