Stamford preps for Tuesday’s blizzard

Stamford Mayor David Martin has declared a snow emergency for Tuesday. 



"Plan on staying in tomorrow. We've got 50 mph winds. Snow that's going to be falling faster than we can clear it with our plows. It's going to be a really nasty one tomorrow, and we would like everyone to stay home," says Martin. 



Parking is not allowed on any of the city's clearly posted snow emergency routes. Martin says people should stay off the streets so the plows can do their job. The Bedford, Summer and Bell street garages will be open to park for free after 5 p.m. Monday. 



Stamford and Norwalk public schools have announced they will be closed Tuesday.
