As Cold Approaches, State Urges Residents to Seek Shelter
The new year's first winter storm is threatening the state, and parts of Connecticut could get more than ten inches of snow.
Snow has already started falling across the state, but forecasters say it will get much heavier later on Thursday. Scott DeVico, the spokesman for the state's Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, is advising motorists to stay off the roads. "Road conditions and visibility will be deteriorating rapidly tonight as the storm comes in," he said.
DeVico is also concerned about the cold, as temperatures head for single digits. He also said those in need of shelter should call 211.
The good news for the state is that the light fluffy snow isn't expected to cause major power outages.
