INDIANAPOLIS — The National Weather Service says the winter storm that hit Indiana on Wednesday dumped its highest snowfall amount near the southern Indiana town of Ellettsville.
Al Shipe of the weather service’s Indianapolis office says the 13-inch snowfall total near that Monroe County town is based on preliminary information. He says the weather service will be preparing a comprehensive snowfall map based on two-day storm totals.
But Shipe says it’s clear that south-central and southwestern Indiana received the highest storm totals, with about a foot of snow.
Evansville saw 7.7 inches of snow and Indianapolis had 7.5 inches for the city’s deepest snowfall since January 2009.
The storm was less severe further north as 2 to 4 inches fell in the Fort Wayne and South Bend areas.
