Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Tuesday that state troopers have responded to nearly 90 calls to help motorists and 28 accidents with no major injuries totals he says would be much higher without the travel ban.
The National Weather Service says western Connecticut could see 2 feet of snow, while coastal areas may only get 4 inches because the snow changed to sleet and freezing rain. Litchfield County already has 17 inches of snow in places.
About 2,700 power outages are reported statewide.
Malloy says the Red Cross canceled 11 blood drives Tuesday, putting a strain on the blood supply. He urged people to donate blood on Wednesday.
