 The city is preparing for the first major snow storm of the season with heavy snow forecasted and strong winds that could create white out conditions.

“People should drive slower than usual and give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination,” said Lt. Steve Goen of the South Bend Police Department.
“Take extra precautions, like leaving extra distance between a car in front of you and braking early. Always remember to wear your seatbelt.”
