HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Tandem tractor-trailer trucks are banned from Connecticut highways and most schools are closed because of a storm expected to dump up to 20 inches of snow and some ice in parts of the state.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy ordered the truck ban to go into effect at 4 a.m. Thursday. The opening of government offices has been delayed until 10 a.m. for non-essential workers.
Metro-North has reduced service to 75 percent of regular train runs.
Bradley International Airport is reporting more than 40 flight cancellations.
Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating say they’re ready to restore any power outages.
The National Weather Service says 10 to 20 inches of snow could fall in northwestern Connecticut, while the rest of the state could see 6 to 12 inches.
