The aftermath of that winter storm that swept the Mid-South is causing delays for first responders in Arkansas.
They're seeing slower response times because of the melting snow and ice.
Medic One Ambulance in Jonesboro prepared for the storm by readying generators, changing tires and clearing driveways.
Director of operations Tim Brickell says conditions like these always delay his crews, but for good reason.
"We have to be safe, so we can even get there. If we slide off the road or anything like that, then that's just that much more time we have to send another vehicle to the scene or whatever," said Brickwell.
Brickell is asking people to slow down and watch their step when going outside.
He's worried about the snow and ice melting and then re-freezing.
Entergy Arkansas said fewer than 100,000 people are still without power across the state Thursday.
More than 130,000 customers affected by the storm have had power restored.
Most of the outages are in the central part of the state
Entergy's outage map reports most of the storm damage is repaired in Critteden County and the Marion area.

Before damage assessments were even finished, Entergy Arkansas said that based on the most recent comparable storm — during the 2000 holiday season — some power could be out until Jan. 1 or later.
