(WTNH)– A lot of people are dealing with a bad mix of power outages, snow pileups and downed trees across the state on Thursday.

Many drivers are heading back on the road after Wednesday’s big snowstorm. Commuters will be greeted with slushy, snowy roads that may be slick.

“Our utilities have hundreds of local contractors, personnel and tree resources across the state are working to restore power in a safe manner,” stated Gov. Dannel Malloy. “Their first priority today will be to handle public safety requests.”

Thousands of people across the state are also in the dark due to power outages.

In terms of when the power will come back on, people are asked to be patient and check in with their utility companies.
