(Associated Press) Sunday’s snow didn’t pack the same intensity as the storm that blew through Michiana on Friday, but it did make an impact. More than two dozen counties in Indiana were placed under some sort of travel restriction due to the snow and freezing rain.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the Indiana Department of Homeland Security reported restrictions in 26 counties Sunday morning and that routine travel or other activities may be restricted in some areas.

WANE-TV reported that icy roads were blamed for several crashes along highways in the Fort Wayne area.

In western Michigan, a stretch of U.S. 131 in Grand Rapids was closed for about an hour late Sunday morning following multiple vehicle crashes. No injuries were reported.
