GREENFIELD — Hancock County is under a blizzard warning today, and local officials are bracing for high winds with several inches of snow that could cause hazardous conditions.

Several local street department workers set out on the roads Christmas Day to lay down salt in preparation of the storm system coming in from the southwest. The National Weather Service calls for 8 to 12 inches of snow through this evening.

“This is going to be the type of storm we might see once every five years in central Indiana,” said meteorologist John Kwiatkowski. “It’s going to be particularly important that people make sure they’re safe and it’s best to stay at home.”

Kwiatkowski said much of the snow will come after 7 a.m. today, and winds will be up to 40 miles per hour.
