HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Another winter storm expected to dump up to 5 inches of snow in Connecticut has prompted schools and businesses across the state to close for the day.
More than 2 inches had already fallen in much of the state by midday, and state police reported numerous accidents on the highways. The University of Connecticut cancelled classes beginning after 2 p.m. at both its Storrs and Greater Hartford campuses.
Many public schools were already closed for their annual winter vacation week. Many of those that were not on break closed because of the snow.
Police closed Route 175 in Newington, because vehicles were unable to make it up a steep hill there.
Police also closed Route 15 north in Milford between exits 55B and 56 closed because of an overturned vehicle.
