HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy is encouraging residents in the southern part of the state to stay off the roads as a snowstorm moves across the region.
Malloy in a statement Saturday afternoon said his office was “closely monitoring storm conditions.”
He says the Department of Transportation has deployed 543 plow trucks focusing on Fairfield County and areas along the shoreline that are seeing the most snow accumulation.
Malloy says weather conditions vary greatly from area to area, and he’s urging drivers in the hardest-hit areas to avoid unnecessary travel.
He says there aren’t any requests for state assistance as of yet.
The Democratic governor says his office will continue to provide updates as needed.
