Authorities in Dubois and White Counties urge using caution when traveling through the storm-affected areas.

Dubois County Emergency Management Agency Director, Tammy Humbert, reports, as of right now, there are no permanent road closures there.

But, authorities are going to wait until daylight arrives in order to get a better assessment of the storm damage.

Humbert stresses that individuals who might be interested in coming to ‘sight-see’ in the storm-damaged areas — please stay away and refrain from visiting too soon.

She says the county highway crews have cleared much of the debris from the roadways, and that representatives from the National Weather Service will make an on-site inspection in order to determine what type of tornado struck the area.

In White County, authorities say that there are too many roads with downed power lines in order to give an accurate assessment of how many remain closed at this time.

They report that the main roads in White County are clear, but that the smaller country roads, those south, east and northeast of Crossville and Phillpstown, that contain a lot of downed powerlines and debris.

Authorities urge the public to please stay off the smaller roads in White County.
