(NECN: Hartford, Conn.) - Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell is coordinating a staggered release of state and private workers to avoid transportation gridlocks as a major storm plows into the state.
Rell also ordered a partial activation of the emergency operation center in Hartford for agencies such as the Transportation Department, state police and emergency management to monitor the storm.
The National Weather Service forecasts 6 to 12 inches for most
of Connecticut by Wednesday night, while eastern Connecticut could
get up to 14. Wind gusts of up to 35 mph could create hazardous
afternoon driving conditions.
