(WTNH) -- A storm on the final weekend of 2012 brought several inches of snow to cities and towns across Connecticut, and it wasn't done snowing yet.
Reports in to News 8 ranged from six inches along the shoreline in Branford to more than nine inches in Killingworth. Unofficial numbers from the Connecticut Department of Transportation show ten inches fell in Colchester, seven inches in Union and Old Saybrook, five inches in Meriden, and many other towns with at least four inches on the ground.
Some drivers who ventured out found themselves in trouble and calling for help. AAA in West Hartford said it had received 450 calls for roadside assistance as of 5:30 p.m.
Gov Dannel Malloy's office said state Department of Transportation crews have "been pretreating roadways/bridges in prep for today's storm. Plows/crews are ready to respond."
Residents were advised to stay inside if possible.
"If you must travel today, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency," The Connecticut Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security advised residents.
The snow was expected to be heavy until 8:00 p.m. tonight.
