Thursday’s storm put a strain on travel, commerce, and the ability of cities and towns to clean up after it. Snow emergency declarations in Connecticut’s second biggest city and by the state may help with the financial strain of the storm.
The region is still busy digging out from the snowstorm that hit overnight. Slick roads have caused traffic deaths and temperatures are expected to sink below zero. In Connecticut, people seem more bothered by the cold than the snow.
Forecasters are expecting anywhere from 6 to 14 inches of snow and frigid temperatures in New York. Long Islanders are bracing for the brunt of the storm with blizzard like conditions lasting as long as 24-hours.
