Nearby Westchester County is subject to the travel ban implement that includes New York City and surrounding downstate areas. While stopping short of a travel ban, Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy urged residents to stay off the road. That recommendation was also shared by local officials.

The final trains are scheduled: From New Haven to Grand Central, the 3:25 p.m. will make all stops to Grand Central; from Stamford to Grand Central, the 4:02 p.m. train will make all stops to Grand Central; from Grand Central to New Haven, the 4:02 p.m. train will make all stops to New Haven with connections at Stamford, South Norwalk and Bridgeport for service on branch lines.

CT Transit stopped bus service Saturday afternoon.

There were two major road closures in Greenwich related to Saturday’s storm.

One person was hospitalized, and 178 were temporarily without power after a bus crash damaged several utility poles and closed the intersection of Soundview Drive and Arch Street. Power has since been restored in the area.

North Street was closed in the 300 block after a pine tree fell.

Residents in low lying coastal areas should be aware of possible flooding conditions with next high tide tonight in Greenwich.
