STRATFORD - Crews are out across southwestern Connecticut working to clear snow off roofs of homes and businesses after the weekend snowstorm that dumped about 3 feet of snow.

Local officials and Gov. Dannel Malloy have called for snow to be removed from roofs to prevent roof collapses.

Companies across the area say they are swamped with requests to clear roofs. Companies tell News 12 that the work is difficult, and that even a small home’s roof could cost $1,000 to clear.
