Governor declares State of Emergency in CT, bans travel beginning tonight

A State of Emergency has been declared in Connecticut by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy as the state prepares for the coming blizzard.

The storm is anticipated to heavily impact the state tonight through Tuesday, and could drop from 2 to 3 feet of snow in Milford and other parts of the state.

Malloy also announced that a travel ban for all roads is in effect beginning at 9 p.m. Monday night.

“People need to take this storm seriously,” Malloy said during a morning press conference at the state's Emergency Operations Center (EOC).

“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 said.

Governor's next update

Malloy will update the public next at 5:02 p.m. this evening on the impending storm from the state EOC in Hartford. He is encouraging people to monitor the media for up-to-date information on the storm.
