The Pulaski County Sheriff's Department has received reports of a large dust storm on Ind. 14 W between CR 1100 W and 1175 W.

Visibility in that area is near zero, according to a release.

Drivers are advised to be observant and take caution while traveling in this location and the surrounding areas.

When a dust storm strikes, use the same rules you would for driving in fog. Do not stop on the road, because cars coming behind you will not see you in time to stop. Instead, slow down and pull to the side of the road, turn off all lights and wait until it's safe to resume driving.

If traffic prevents you from pulling off the road, look down at the white lines on the pavement to keep the car pointing in the right direction, and drive very slowly, until the dust passes, which should only take a few minutes.
