Allen: Travel watch issued

A winter weather travel watch has been issued for Allen County, county officials announced today.

The watch means conditions are threatening to the public's safety, and only essential travel, such as to or from work or in emergencies, is recommended, the county said in a statement.

If travel is necessary, drive slowly and have a cellphone and emergency supplies in vehicles, the statement said. It said drivers should stay off roads if possible so highway crews can remove snow.
