INDIANAPOLIS - A blast of snow, gusty winds and plunging temperatures in the Midwest created headaches for travelers Tuesday with canceled flights and slick, slushy roads.
The storm — packing strong winds and a blast of Arctic air — was expected to reach the mid-Atlantic states and New York later Tuesday.
The weather service issued a blizzard warning until midnight for counties north of Indianapolis and south of South Bend, in the northernmost part of the state. A winter storm warning was in effect until midnight in central Indiana.
Officials in Fountain County in west-central Indiana declared a snow emergency. The county's emergency management director said roads were closed except for "extreme emergency traffic."
