Gov. declare state of emergency; roads shut down 9 p.m. tonight

Governor Dannel P. Malloy has declared a State of Emergency in preparation for the coming blizzard, which is anticipated to heavily impact the state tonight through Tuesday.  In addition, the Governor announced that a travel ban for all roads is in effect beginning at 9 p.m. tonight.


“People need to take this storm seriously,” said Governor Malloy in a press release.  “If current predictions are accurate, we will need people to stay off the roads so that emergency personnel and utility crews can get to the places they need to get to, and to make sure that our plows can keep critical roadways clear.”

The governor will update the public at 5:02 p.m. this evening on the impending storm from the state Emergency Operations Center in Hartford.  The governor is also encouraging people to monitor the media for up-to-date information on the storm.
