NORWALK - Crews and residents across southwestern Connecticut are gearing up for the next big storm to hit the area.

Many residents are heading to local stores to stock up on ice melt, shovels and snow rakes.

News 12 spoke with the owner of Hemlock Hardware in Fairfield who says they are running out of storm supplies, despite receiving four shipments of ice and roof melt Wednesday.

The mayors of Norwalk and Stamford have already declared snow emergencies that go into effect Wednesday.

Stamford Mayor David Martin says the city has already dealt with an overwhelming 50 inches of snow this season, and they are straining their resources.
