LAPORTE, Ind. (AP) - The National Weather Service says more than 25 inches (63.5 centimeters) of snow have fallen near the northwestern Indiana city of LaPorte over three days.

It says the lake-effect snow pushed by northwesterly winds coming off Lake Michigan dumped 25.1 inches (63.75 centimeters) at a measuring point 1 mile (1.6 kilometer) southwest of the city over 72 hours ending at 7 a.m. Saturday.

The weather service says more than 17 inches (43 centimeters) of snow were measured in Stevensville and Buchanan, Michigan.

The LaPorte County Herald-Argus reported county and LaPorte city offices closed by noon Friday because of the heavy snow. Several school districts in the area also were closed.
