(ANGOLA) - Officials in Steuben and Noble Counties have gone to a yellow travel advisory after nearly five inches of snow fell between 5:00am and 9:00am. Steuben County Sheriff Tim Troyer says county roads in open areas are starting to show signs of drifting snow due to the high winds. Heavy snow with high winds are reducing visibility and roads are becoming very slippery. Should you require travel, Troyer says you should allow plenty of time, drive slower than normal and use full headlights during daytime travel rather than daytime running lights. He says the travel advisory in Steuben County will be in effect indefinitely. Williams County went to a Level 2 Snow Emergency at 6:00pm on Wednesday night which meant travel should be restricted to travel that was absolutely necessary. Williams County roads were reported to be sliipery and snow covered and that drifting was a problem on many roads including state highways.
