HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says he’s planning to partially activate the state’s Emergency Operations Center ahead of the latest snowstorm.
The Democrat says the EOC will begin monitoring storm conditions at 4 a.m. Tuesday. He says the nor’easter is expected to have an impact on the morning and potentially afternoon commutes.
Malloy says 4 to 8 inches of snow is predicted for western Connecticut, 8 to 12 inches in central Connecticut and 10 to 16 inches in eastern Connecticut. Light snow is expected to begin between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Tuesday.
The Department of Transportation is expected to have more than 600 plow trucks and 200 private contractors ready to clear state roads.
