Drivers faced treacherous conditions on Friday as heavy, wet snow fell across the state.
As the snow piles up in the Northeast, so do the power outages.
In Massachusetts, Eversource and National Grid combined are reporting nearly 21,000 homes and businesses without power.
Connecticut’s two major utilities are reporting nearly 16,000 customers without power combined.
National Grid also has about 3,500 Rhode Island customers without electricity.
Fewer than 1,000 scattered outages are being reported in New Hampshire.
Officials say the slushy, heavy snow is expected to bring down tree limbs on power lines as the storm progresses.
