PERRY COUNTY — The first significant wintry weather of the season slickened local roadways and canceled classes for students this week.

A thin but slick coating of ice fell Tuesday and Wednesday. Officers responded to several slide-offs Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, many of them on Interstate 64, and paramedics were called to at least one report of a person slipping on ice.

No serious injuries were reported by police.

Perry Central called off classes Tuesday and Wednesday. Tell City-Troy Township Schools were closed Tuesday and delayed the start of classes Wednesday.
