Note: After an 8:30 conference call,  the governor’s office confirmed the 10:30 a.m. start time.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has ordered all non-essential state employees to report to work at 10:30 a.m. due to the latest snow storm, which also was hitting parts of the state with ice.

State employees were advised to check online, television or radio for an update at 9 a.m.

The National Weather Service has issued an ice storm warning until noon Wednesday for coastal and eastern Connecticut, with up to an inch of ice expected by midday, and until 6 p.m. farther inland.

Malloy says he’s worried that ice added to already fallen snow could lead to more roof collapses across Connecticut. He says emergency officials are on standby to respond should structures collapse.

As much as 6 inches of snow was added Tuesday to several feet that accumulated in January. Many school districts already had canceled classes.
