LAPORTE, Ind. (AP) — The National Weather Service says more than 25 inches of snow have fallen near the northwestern Indiana city of LaPorte over three days.

It says the lake-effect snow pushed by northwesterly winds coming off Lake Michigan dumped 25.1 inches at a measuring point 1 mile southwest of the city over 72 hours ending at 7 a.m. Saturday.

The weather service says more than 17 inches of snow were measured in Stevensville and Buchanan.

The LaPorte County Herald-Argus reported county and LaPorte city offices closed by noon Friday because of the heavy snow. Several school districts in the area also were closed.
