Forecasters warn of hazardous in Mass. and Conn.
BOSTON -- The National Weather Service is warning residents of icy roads and falling debris following the weekend autumn snow storm that's expected to leave up to 15 inches in Connecticut and up to 20 inches in Massachusetts.
Officials say there may be icy spots on roads, sidewalks and parking lots. They also caution that the wet, heavy snow could cause tree branches, power lines and other items to fall.
The storm delivered an autumn blast of snow that already has snapped tree limbs, forced road closures and is blamed on at least one death in the Connecticut. It also left more than 700,000 electricity customers without power in Connecticut and more than 485,000 in Massachusetts.
Light snow is expected to taper off Sunday morning before ending later in the day.
