Friday's nor'easter left damaging effects across many parts of western Connecticut.
There were several reports of trees crashing into homes and downed power lines in Stamford. Certain areas experienced major flooding, which made it hard for people while driving.
Large towns like Greenwich and Stratford saw extensive damage to city infrastructure, while smaller towns like Wilton saw dozens of road closures.
Coastal Fairfield County saw mostly rain, and Litchfield got hit with snow and ice.
Route 7 in Kent was closed for a good portion of Friday due to a fallen tree blocking the road. Plows were busy at work on the main roads clearing away the snow for those who decided to venture out.
Crews continued to work Saturday to restore power after the storm knocked out some grids. As of Saturday morning, Eversource said it restored electricity to nearly 122,000 customers.
About 40,000 customers were still in the dark.
Greenwich reported the most outages, with more than 5,000. Stamford and New Canaan had the second- and third-most outages.
