Indiana is closed. Well, not really, but pretty close. With temperatures predicted to hit their lowest mark of the year today, all schools in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio are closed, as are several businesses, churches, food banks, libraries and county buildings in the surrounding area.
At press time, Decatur city offices and Adams County offices remain open, as do most local businesses.
Decatur reached a high of only 4 degrees Monday, with an overnight low of 13 below. However with the wind chill, it felt closer to 25 below.
A wind chill warning issued by the National Weather Service remains in effect until 11 a.m. Wednesday. Bitterly cold temperatures, combined with 10-20 mph winds, will create wind chills around 30 below today. Wind chills tonight and into Wednesday morning will hover around 25 below.
