State of emergency declared for NYC area
Albany- Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency Tuesday ahead of snowfall and extreme cold temperatures.
The State of Emergency is mostly focused in the New York City area, and covers the following counties: Suffolk, Nassau, Richmond, Kings, Queens, New York, Bronx, Westchester and Rockland.
This winter storm will bring a one-two punch of snow and extreme cold. I urge all those in the affected regions to exercise caution, and avoid travel if possible, Governor Cuomo said in a statement. State resources are deployed to clear snow and help those impacted by the storm, but above all it is important that New Yorkers remain safe both during and after the storm.
