Mayor John A. Harkins has declared a state of emergency in Stratford, meaning all roads are closed indefinitely to non-public safety and non-public works personnel.
"Staying off the roads will allow town crews to start opening roadways," a statement from the mayor's office reads. "Many roads are impassable, and it is expected that it will take 24-48 hours to clear all roadways in Stratford.
"For anyone needing additional information or assistance, please call the blizzard hotline at 203-380-6757."
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has ordered the same travel ban for the entire state.
