Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today declared a state of emergency in an attempt for the state to pursue a request to the federal government to help some municipalities in Connecticut that are experiencing road salt shortages for the remainder of this winter season.
Today’s winter weather event is the 12th of the season.
“I have asked our state emergency management personnel to reach out to our cities and towns tonight and get more information on what their salt supplies look like right now, indicating to us how much they currently have on hand and how much they use in a typical storm,” Malloy said.
“This will enable us to pursue a request to the federal government to assist these communities to increase their supplies as the winter season continues.
