I have an Associated Press Stylebook question here about abbreviations at the end of a sentence.?

How do you properly write the following

Her hometown is Norwich, Conn.

Now note that Conn. is an abbreviation and that it is also the end of the sentence. I don't put two periods there do I?

Or do I? Word thinks its wrong and so do I but I can't find it in the 2003 style book.

I could rewrite the sentence so that Conn. is not at the end of the sentence but I would like to know for future reference.

Update:

Here is another one. What do you do when a website is at the end of the sentence like Amazon.com.?

Do we drop the dot? Or have it do a duel purpose but then as above what if the punctuation is not a period?

    just use one period. i think most people would use the abbreviation CT for Connecticut.
