Ice, snow make roads treacherous in Paoli, Ind.

Posted: Updated:

PAOLI, Ind. (WDRB) -- The town square of Paoli, Ind. had a covering of ice and snow Friday afternoon, as heavy snow continued to fall.

Most people did the sensible thing and stayed home. The snow started falling at approximately 10:00 a.m. It was proceeded by sleet and freezing rain which left about an 1.5 inches of ice on the roads.

WDRB's Bill Francis and photojournalist Dominic Fuhrmann made the 50-mile drive up from Louisville this morning. They report that Hwy. 150 was slushy and there were patches of ice making it very dangerous. They saw salt and plow trucks out on the roads, but the snow was coming down so fast it was difficult to keep up with.

Earlier they spoke with Rick Emerick who heads the Orange County Emergency Management agency.

"Currently, we're under a travel advisory for the county," he said. "If you don't need to be out, don't be out here. The county roads are not really in good shape, but the crews are working, doing the best they can with it. We still, as you can see, we've still got snowfall coming, so we're dealing it with as it comes down."
