INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The state has created a free mobile app aimed to helping people traveling through Indiana avoid trouble spots.

State officials say the app will let include notifications about weather, flooding, hazardous materials spills and other events that could affect travel.

Gov. Mike Pence says an online county-by-county travel advisory map has been one of the most popular pages on the state of Indiana website, particularly during times of inclement weather. He says the Indiana Department of Homeland Security county travel status map had nearly 5 million unique visitors between Dec. 1, 2013, and March 31. Pence says the app will make the information more convenient.

The app allows users to set alerts for any county or counties they choose.
