LaPorte County Police still have beefed up patrols due to this bitter cold.
Sheriff John Boyd says officers from the detective bureau and other
areas of the department are on patrol duty until the arctic like conditions
ease up.
Boyd says travel conditions are still hazardous but at least the winds have
subsided which helps.
He says it was 26 degrees below zero at about 7:30 a.m. while driving past
Springfield Elementary School.
