Gov. Cuomo declares State of Emergency

NEW YORK STATE--Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency across all 62 counties in New York, Monday, ahead of the winter storm that brought heavy snowfall and wind.
"To ensure our local governments have the resources and support they need to prepare and respond quickly to the winter storm, I am declaring a statewide state of emergency," Cuomo said. "With heavy snow and blizzard-like conditions expected from upstate to downstate, we are taking every precaution to keep New Yorkers safe. I urge residents to stay informed, avoid unnecessary travel, and where possible, leave work early as heavy snowfall is expected to begin."
Snow covered upstate New York, where 12 to 24 inches of snow was seen in the western New York, Finger Lakes, and central New York regions over a 48 hour period beginning Monday night. Areas south of Lake Ontario from Buffalo to Rochester saw periods of snowfall of 2 to 3 inches per hour during parts of the day Tuesday.
Travel was dangerous from high rates of blowing and drifting snow. The governor also announced a temporary tractor trailer ban on interstates on I-81, I-84, I-86/Route 17, I-88 and all of the New York State Thruway, Tuesday.
The leading cause of death and injuries during winter storms is transportation accidents.
• Before getting behind the wheel or your car, clear it of ice and snow. Good vision is a key to good driving.
• Plan your stops and keep more distance between cars. Be extra alert. Remember, snowdrifts can hide smaller children.
• Always match your speed to the road and weather conditions.
