HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -
Gov. Dannel Malloy on Friday urged shoreline residents to monitor and prepare for the storm over the coming days.
“Our office is receiving real-time updates on this storm and its path," Malloy said. "Just as the state is monitoring and preparing, the public should do the same, especially residents in our shoreline communities.
Malloy said that based on Hermine’s current projected path, his office "does not believe it will have a major impact on the state," but it "does have the potential to produce some gusty winds and minor to moderate coastal flooding, especially in low-lying areas along the shoreline."
"Power outages are also a possibility with this storm," he said. "This storm needs to be watched closely over the next three to four days.”
