MYSTIC, Conn. — Several thousand people remain without power in Connecticut as crews work to clean up trees and utility lines felled by a powerful nor’easter.

Eversource says it hopes to restore all of its customers by the end of the day on Sunday.

Authorities said a number of roads in the state remain closed because of debris from the storm.

WTNH-TV reports that a hotel in Mystic remains closed after a section of the building’s roof blew off Friday night during the storm. No one was injured and about 30 guests from the Mystic River Inn were relocated to a nearby hotel.

Many of the guests were Eversource employees who had been deployed to the area to help with power restoration.
