(WFSB) -- Thousands of people across the state are without power due to what Winter Storm Yoshi has brought overnight.

Saturday night’s snow transitioned into sleet and freezing rain, which led to power lines being coated with ice.

As of about 11 p.m. on Sunday, Eversource was reporting more than 10,000 customers to be without power, many in Cheshire, Newtown, Bethany, Seymour, Oxford and Middletown.

The number steadily decreased as crews made repairs.

United Illuminating reported more than 8,000 to be without power, many in New Haven, Hamden, and Woodbridge.

Winter Storm Yoshi moved into the state Saturday night, and brought snow before transitioning to a wintry mix and rain.

That wintry mix included sleet and freezing rain, which iced up trees and power lines across parts of the state.

Some tree branches were down in parts of Meriden, on Gypsy Lane, South Broad Street and Crown Street Extension.

In Vernon, police said Route 30 was closed between Meadowlark and West Street around 10:30 a.m. due to downed wires. Part of the road has since reopened.

In Middletown on Sunday morning, trees were coated with ice and in one case a limb came down on top of a truck.

Some coastal flooding was also being reported in Norwalk and Old Saybrook.
