FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The ice and snow Sunday night into Monday morning created headaches as people tried to get back to work and school.

A heavy burst of snow shortly before the morning commute laid down an additional inch or two of snow in a short period of time, causing problems for many. The Fort Wayne Police Department responded to 49 reported accidents from midnight to 1:30 p.m. on Monday. Only two of these had possible injuries

Many schools initially on a two-hour delay decided to close for the day. Many counties in the area were also under a travel advisory. Click here to see how you can check travel advisory status for counties in Indiana as well as links to driving conditions.
