New York governor declares state of emergency amid storm

By The Associated Press

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo has declared a state of emergency for the lower Hudson Valley, New York City and Long Island.

The governor said Thursday in a conference call about the snowstorm that there are treacherous conditions on highways throughout the region.

He says highway crews are out plowing, but the snow is falling at a rate of 2 to 3 inches in some areas. That's making it difficult to keep up.

Cuomo says many New Yorkers are heeding his call to stay off the highways.
