Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, in a press conference held at 11 a.m. today (Feb. 9) advised residents that a travel ban remains in effect today, until further notice, so that roads can be cleared for emergency vehicles.
Many roads in the state are impassable because of stalled cars and/or record-breaking accumulations of snow.
Gov. Malloy also warned that clearing roads is likely to “go on for a number of days.”
He also warned residents about the dangers of carbon-monoxide poisoning since snowfall and snow drifts can block ventilation.
Meanwhile, weather forecasters say the blizzard warning has been lifted in the following counties: Middlesex, New London and New Haven.
However, light snow continues to fall and chilly temperatures are still a concern. The wind-chill factor means the temperatures are effectively in the single-digits to the 20s. The wind-chill temperature in Storrs-Mansfield, for example, was 6 degrees as of 11 a.m.
