Up to 13 inches of snow forecast



Jackson County faces 6 to 13 inches of snow Wednesday, depending on who one chooses to listen to, a county official said Wednesday morning.

"I have heard some models that are telling us the storm down South has pulled some of the moisture out of what we were to get," Duane Davis of Jackson County Emergency Management Office said. "I've heard six inches to 13 inches."

He estimated he had receive 2.5 inches of snow at his Brownstown residence by 7 a.m. as a mixture of snow and ice continued to fall across the county.

Davis said Jackson County and Seymour governmental offices were closed Wednesday because of the storm. That includes the city's bus service.

Dick Wilde of Seymour Department of Public Works said road crews are plowing and salting city streets.

Others were attempting to collect trash and recycle routes, but work could come to a halt if conditions worsen, Wilde said.
