Winter Weather Update

Conditions continue to worsen across the area, and snowfall totals for the Evansville area could be more than first thought.
8:45a.m.---Owensboro Police say conditions in that area have become extremely dangerous over the past hour.  Emergency crews are currently working several accidents involving vehicles that ran off the road.  Drivers are asked to be very careful when heading out.

Indiana State police are also working accidents.  One of those is on I-64 near Lynnville.  Troopers say the incident involved three vehicles, but there did not appear to be any injuries.


3:30a.m.
---Conditions continue to worsen across the area. As of 3:30a.m., several accidents were being reported by Evansville Dispatch. A semi has slid off of Interstate 64 near the 18 mile marker. There is also a car off the road near Kratzville Road and Buena Vista. On Highway 41 North at Veterans Memorial Parkway, a Greyhound bus is stuck in the ice. And there is a car stuck in the 4600 block of Covert near Green River. The current forecast has the sleet changing to all snow in Evansville between 6-9a.m., and totals of up to 11 inches are not out of the question. Be careful out there if you have to head out.
