Conn. governor to declare state of emergency
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he will be declaring a state of emergency because of the incoming blizzard and is warning that some highways may be closing as early as noon.
Malloy said Friday morning that people need to take the storm seriously, and he's urging motorists to stay off the roads so emergency workers can get to where they need to go.
The governor is also urging residents to stay home once the weather gets bad.
The National Weather Service is predicting the storm will dump up to 2 feet of snow in places and pack wind gusts of up to 60 mph. The worst of the storm is expected Friday evening into Saturday morning.
