Statement from Governor Kathy Hochul, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz, and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown

“Over the last 24 hours we have seen dangerous, rapidly-shifting conditions across Erie County. Our forecasts predict the City of Buffalo and eastern suburbs will receive an additional foot of snow tonight. To address these extreme conditions, we will be extending all current travel bans and advisories until 6:00 AM tomorrow morning. At that time, restrictions will be lifted everywhere in the City of Buffalo, most of Erie County, all State roads and the New York State Thruway. A full travel ban will continue in the City of Lackawanna and the Towns of Cheektowaga and Lancaster, which will be hardest hit overnight, but will be reevaluated after 6:00 AM. We are grateful to the plow drivers, emergency personnel and first responders working to keep our communities safe.”
