Update at 7:05 p.m.

East Haven school officials have closed all pubic and parochial schools for Wednesday in anticipation of tomorrow's storm.

Update at 7 p.m.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's office announced a short time ago that he will partially activate the state’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at midnight tonight to monitor storm conditions across the state and prepare for the heavy snow forecasted to begin overnight and continue into the late afternoon Wednesday.

“After speaking with emergency management officials and assessing the current forecast, I am calling for the partial activation of the EOC tonight to better coordinate a rapid response to any problems that may arise during the height of the storm,” Malloy said. “Beginning early tomorrow morning, this storm is forecasted to produce very heavy snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain causing low visibility and deteriorating driving conditions. I am urging everyone to exercise caution if they must travel tomorrow.”
