Wind-whipped snow leads to crashes, school closings
Snow, high winds, and falling temperatures led to accidents and school closings in the Tri-State Tuesday morning.
Only about an inch of snow was recorded at Evansville, but the timing caused plenty of problems. The wind-whipped snow arrived just in time for the morning rush hour, leading to a number of accidents and prompting many school districts to delay classes.
As road conditions deteriorated, most school districts decided to cancel classes for Tuesday, including those in Vanderburgh, Warrick, Posey, Gibson, Henderson and Daviess counties.
The snow piled-up deeper in areas north and east of Evansville. State highway officials closed a 60-mile stretch of Interstate 65 between Louisville and Seymour because of slippery conditions and numerous crashes. Four inches of snow was recorded at Seymour.
