VANDERBURGH COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) — The Evansville / Vanderburgh County Emergency Management Agency issued a travel watch for the county Tuesday.

A watch is the median level of travel advisory and means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a “watch” local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended, and emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations.

The EMA says the watch is in effect until April 20.

Vanderburgh County is currently the only Tri-State county with a travel watch, but joins several other Indiana counties. You can see a statewide map of travel statuses here.
