Gov. shutting down the roads

This just in from the governor’s office:

No Trucks Allowed into State After 11AM; Complete Road Closure at 1PM

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today ordered road closures for all state highways. The closures will be implemented in two phases. At 11:00 A.M., trucks will be prohibited from operating on limited access highways. At 1:00 P.M., state highways will be closed to all non-emergency related vehicles.

“Residents need to take this storm very seriously. Beginning in the next several hours, wind gusts will begin to exceed 50 m.p.h., making traveling along our roads – especially wooded areas like the Merritt Parkway – very dangerous. We’re doing this in two phases, so that trucks will first be prohibited and then all non-emergency vehicles. If you’re in a non-evacuation area, stay home.”
