Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that his request for a presidential emergency declaration in the wake of Friday’s historic winter storm has been approved. In addition, he is urging residents to continue staying off the roads today unless absolutely necessary.
“This declaration will provide much needed assistance to the state and our towns and cities as we continue to recover from this historic winter storm,” said Governor Malloy. “While the ban on travel has been lifted, we are continuing to urge residents to stay off the roads, if at all possible. This is particularly true for tractor trailers. Every time someone gets stuck, it is preventing plows from doing their jobs.”
