Hospitals in Connecticut remained busy because of injuries caused by Blizzard Charlotte.
There have been many reported cases of hypothermia, according to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
Hospital officials warned people to be careful when clearing snow Saturday.
"We also see cardiac events during clean up as people who aren't accustomed to strenuous activity start shoveling and cleaning up," Hartford Hospital said in a statement. "Please be careful and do not shovel, if your body isn't up for it."
People were warned not to put their hands in any part of a snowblower for any reason. If the blower gets clogged, people are advised to use a stick to clear it.
The hospital is offering people the following tips when a snow blower jams:
Turn it off
Wait five seconds after shutting machine off to allow impeller blades to stop rotating
Always use a stick or broom handle to clear impacted snow
Never put your hand down chute or around blades
Keep all shields in place. Do not remove the safety devices on the machine
Keep hands and feet away from all moving parts
Keep a clear head, concentrate, and do not drink before using your snowblower
An 81-year-old woman was killed in Prospect after she was hit by a car while she was snow blowing her driveway. The incident is being investigated as a hit-and-run.
Malloy also signed an order that allows ambulance workers to not respond to non-emergency calls.
A travel ban remains in effect for most of Saturday and the governor has ordered all roads to remain closed in Connecticut.
People using generators are being advised to keep their homes ventilated. All vents on the home should remain cleared if they became clogged with snow.
Drivers should also uncover their exhaust pipes if they became covered.
Hartford Hospital employees were feed a hot breakfast Saturday morning, while city plow workers were given a hot meal Friday evening.
