Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today declared a state of emergency for the Mid-Hudson, New York City, and Long Island regions as a Nor’Easter storm continues to impact parts of the State. Under a state of emergency, critical resources that are normally restricted to State use are mobilized to assist local governments and laws and regulations that would otherwise impede their rapid response are suspended.

“With this winter storm continuing to deliver snow, ice, and freezing rain across parts of the State, I am declaring a state of emergency in these regions so that we can continue to effectively respond to the storm and aid communities in need,” Governor Cuomo said. “These regions are expected to continue to receive heavy snow that may accumulate at rates of around two to three inches per hour, which will make it difficult for plows to keep some roads clear. New Yorkers should stay off of the roads and remain in their homes until the worst of the storm has passed.”
