Cuomo warns weather could snarl holiday travel

Nov 27, 2019 1:15 pm
Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is urging New Yorkers to prepare for an approaching storm system expected to bring snow, rain and high winds across much of the state over the long holiday weekend. The National Weather Service has issued several watches for high winds in Western New York and the Finger Lakes region, as well as lakeshore flooding watches along Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Within the WGXC listening area, the National Weather Service is warning of the possibility of winds up to 45 mph, beginning Wed., Nov. 27, and continuing through Thanksgiving Day. A wintry mix of precipitation is possible from Sunday into Monday. Cuomo reports the state's utilities have roughly 4,500 workers available in the event of wind or storm-related damage. In anticipation of potential power outages, residents are encouraged to have a list of emergency numbers readily available; keep a battery-operated radio and flashlight on hand, as well as a supply of batteries, as well as an emergency supply of water, medications, and non-perishable foods handy. Keep cell phones charged and have alternative charging methods available. Read Cuomo's full press release at governor [dot] ny [dot] gov.
