Governor Dannel P. Malloy said storm clean-up will take a 'number of days.' He noted the following safety tips:
- Make sure vents to household appliances like dryers are not blocked by snow. If blocked, carbon monoxide could build up inside and prove deadly.
- Generators should be properly ventilated to the outdoors.
- If you live near a fire hydrant, dig it out so firemen can access in the event of an emergency.
