MOUNT KISCO, Westchester County (WABC) -- The winter storm was in full swing late Wednesday night into Thursday morning north of New York City, leaving roadways snow-covered and cars slipping.

But officials said there were no major problems with power outages.

The only people out Thursday morning were those clearing away the snow and a few dedicated people who had to get to work.

Treacherous roads made for dangerous driving conditions all over the Hudson Valley. Road crews in Westchester County were busy all night amid the accumulating snow.
