ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - As of 12:30 this afternoon, unincorporated Allen County is under a Level 3 winter weather event.
The Level 3 is the lowest alert level.
While officials urge caution, you can still make your way around town.
A Level 2 alert means conditions are becoming more treacherous.
Often times blowing snow and large amounts of ice can warrant one of these.
During a Level 1 event, only emergency vehicles are allowed on the road.
If you're caught driving without good reason, you can actually get a ticket.
Although we're under the lowest level weather event now, officials say you should still be careful.
Citizens should use caution or avoid restricted areas. Schools and businesses may begin to implement their emergency action plans.
The Level 3 event was issued after consultation between Allen County Sheriff Ken Fries and County Highway Director Bill Hartman. Hartman said county trucks will remain on highways through 6:00 this evening for snow removal purposes.
