“After talking with my emergency management officials and assessing the situation, we will be partially activating the State Emergency Operations Center at 1 p.m. today,” said Governor Malloy. “This will allow us to quickly respond to any problems that may arise as a result of today’s storm. I am asking everyone to take it slow as you head out for your afternoon commute.”
