HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says five deaths in Connecticut apparently are related to the storm that dumped as much as 3 feet of snow on the state.

The deaths included a woman in her 80s who was killed in Prospect by a hit-and-run driver as she was clearing snow after the storm began Friday.

Shelton police said a 49-year-old man died after apparently suffering a "medical event" while shoveling snow. A 73-year-old man also died when he was apparently cleaning up and fell in Danbury, and a man was found dead in a driveway in Bridgeport. Details were not immediately available on the fifth death.

Malloy predicted storm recovery would take several days, and he said he would ask President Barack Obama for an emergency declaration to secure federal assistance.
