Gov. Ned Lamont says Connecticut's severe weather protocol went into effect Friday.
This comes ahead of the expected drop in temperatures and a possible storm this weekend. The protocol will run from 12 p.m. Friday through 12 p.m. Wednesday.
The protocol will ensure that vulnerable populations can receive protection and shelter from severe cold conditions.
