Conn. workers dismissed early ahead of snow storm

Posted: Updated:

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut's governor has called for the early release of state workers and schools across the state were closing early as a coastal winter storm bears down on the Northeast.

Forecasters are calling for the storm to drop a half of foot of snow or more across the state, with the heaviest snow falling Thursday night. Connecticut is also bracing for frigid temperatures on Friday.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy urged the private sector to consider sending employees home early. Dismissals of executive branch agency workers are beginning at 3 p.m. and continuing in 15-minute intervals.

The governor plans to partially activate the state emergency operations center Thursday afternoon in case it needs to help coordinate the response to any problems created by the storm.
