14 March 2017 International
New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo, has declared a state of emergency in the north-eastern US states of New York and New Jersey over impending snowstorms.
The declaration came today following a warning issued yesterday by US National Weather Service that storm with heavy snow and potentially damaging winds that would create hazardous travel conditions would affect many parts of the North-Eastern tomorrow morning.
Mr. Cuomo said the state of emergency would go into effect at midnight while flood watch is expected to go into effect today for coastal regions in New York.
