INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The mayor of Indianapolis has upgraded the city's travel emergency level to "red," making it illegal for anyone to drive except for emergency personnel, emergency purposes or seeking shelter.

The move by Mayor Greg Ballard on Sunday is the first time Indianapolis has issued such a travel warning since the 1978 blizzard.

Ballard says in a news release that he plans to reevaluate the situation at noon Monday.

Numerous school districts, colleges, cities and counties in Indiana announced they would be closed Monday as the National Weather Service warned of deadly wind chills as low as 45 below zero possible through Tuesday.
