INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – In advance of Sunday’s expected snowstorm and bitter temperatures, Indiana Governor Mike Pence actived the Indiana National Guard to stage Highway Assistance Teams.
The Guard deployed 24 teams of 96 individuals across the state to assist in life saving and rescue operations. Each team has two vehicles and four individuals, according to the governor’s office.
Armories involved in the deployment include Lebanon, Johnson County, Shelbyville, Indianapolis, Richmond, Brazil, Columbus, Seymour, Scottsburg, New Albany, and Terre Haute.
The teams will assist rescuing stranded motorists, moving individuals to shelters, and assisting local EMS in reaching individuals in need of medical attention.
Weather forecasts predict parts of northern Indiana may receive as much as a foot of snow before subzero temperatures hit much of the region on Monday. Within the WCPO viewing area four Indiana counties remain under a winter storm warning.
In Kentucky, that warning was downgraded to a winter weather advisory Sunday morning. Kentucky's Transportation Cabinet in turn downgraded their District Six "snow fighters" from actively reporting at 3 a.m. to on-call status beginning at 7 a.m. on Monday.
