INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence has ordered nearly 100 Indiana National Guard members to be in place ready to help in case of emergencies caused by the snow and extreme cold.

Pence ordered 24 four-person teams, each with two vehicles, to be ready to rescue stranded motorists, move people to shelters and assisting local emergency services workers in reaching people who need medical help. State officials say more National Guard members may be added if needed.

Armories deploying teams include Brazil, Columbus, Indianapolis, Johnson County, Lebanon, New Albany, Richmond, Scottsburg, Seymour, Shelbyville and Terre Haute.
