The Ripley County Commissioners have changed the travel advisory status to ADVISORY. Please see the below diagram for information explaining the different travel status levels. I have also attached the link and a PDF of the entire state travel status as well.

Indiana Department of Homeland Security
County Travel Status for 02/16/2015 10:25:10 EDT
  • Warning
    • The highest level of local travel advisory, means that travel may be restricted to emergency management workers only. During a "warning" local travel advisory, individuals are directed to:
      • (A) refrain from all travel;
      • (B) comply with necessary emergency measures;
      • (C) cooperate with public officials and disaster services forces in executing emergency operations plans; and
      • (D) obey and comply with the lawful directions of properly identified officers.
  • Watch
    • Means that conditions are threatening to the safety of the public. During a "watch" local travel advisory, only essential travel, such as to and from work or in emergency situations, is recommended, and emergency action plans should be implemented by businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations.
  • Advisory
    • The lowest level of local travel advisory, means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation, and individuals should use caution or avoid those areas.
