Long Islanders are digging their way out of a wintry mess Thursday after an arctic blast blew out of the northeast.
News 12 Long Island crews saw several drivers struggling to free their vehicles from freezing snow.

Residents are urged to stay indoors and use caution if they must drive. Sanitation workers are spreading salt and sand to avoid more accidents.
