SEYMOUR, Ind. (AP) — State police say a 60-mile stretch of Interstate 65 is open again in southern Indiana, but say some counties along the corridor have declared travel watches or warnings.

Meanwhile, in northern Indiana, state police say I-80/94 in Lake County is at a standstill because a band of lake effect snow has dropped nearly a foot of snow.

The state Department of Homeland Security reports Scott County in southeastern Indiana has issued the highest level of local travel advisory, asking people to refrain from travel. Fifteen other counties are under travel watches, meaning conditions are threatening to public safety and only essential travel, such as to and from work, is recommended.

Thirty-one counties are under travel advisories, meaning travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of hazardous situations.
