Eclipse Website Helping Hoosiers Get Ready for Natural Phenomenon

On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will plunge much of Indiana into momentary darkness. Excitement and interest are growing for the big event as hundreds of thousands of people plan to be in the state to get a prime viewing of the eclipse.

Kaspar media has put together a site on Clinton County Daily News and Boone County Daily News customized to the local area.

In addition to this site, IDHS, state agencies and local government personnel are partnering together to ensure all Hoosiers and visitors can experience the spectacle safely. Communities and families can visit to learn how to prepare for the eclipse and get safety information during the eclipse. The webpage houses information on best practices for communities to plan for the influx of crowds, shareable public safety information and links to partner webpages for additional information.
