The snow is flying in New York State as a powerful Nor'Easter is pounding the region with ice, snow and strong winds. The spring can't get here soon enough for most residents in New York State.

The snow and cold are one thing. However, the winds and flooding are the biggest issue for homes and businesses. Power outages are almost certain and the Governor has already issued a state of emergency for portions of New York.

The issue with flooding is beyond the damage to property and the threat of mold in buildings. There are warnings to not drive through a flooded area.

Here in the Buffalo area, we are seeing lower amounts of accumulation for this storm.
