INDIANA (Indiana's NewsCenter) - This week's snowstorm forced some area counties to declare different levels of snow emergencies, which can get confusing.
When storms hit, a county can announce levels of warnings based on the road conditions in that county.
A level-1 is the most serious, as all travel is restricted except for emergency vehicles.
A level-2 limits drivers to essential travel only.
Level-3 only warns drivers some areas may be hazardous.
The alert system was recommended by the state about three years ago.
It applies to the counties, but city mayors also have the power to declare emergencies for areas within their city limits.
