The Governor is asking all residents to limit nonessential travel. ‘People need to take this storm seriously. 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,’ Governor Malloy said. ’Please stay home once the weather gets bad except in the case of real emergency.’”
