BOSTON, Mass. -- The headaches from the weekend's snowstorm are far from over.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick toured some of the areas hit hardest by the blizzard and met with local officials Monday.
The governor encouraged people to be patient and offered his advice.
Patrick said people using generators should do so with caution--- keeping ventilation in mind.
He also assured them that utility crews are hard at work, trying to restore power to the more than 100,000 customers still in the dark.
"Mother nature is a powerful force when she wants to be and she certainly has been in the past few days. I understand across the state there are still a little over 100,000 customers without power, the utilities are working to restore that power,' said Patrick.
In parts of Massachusetts, seawater flooded coastal roads forcing some evacuations -- and with rain in the forecast, officials also urged residents to clear as much snow as they can off their roofs.
