Higher temperatures mean more problems for Buffalo.
As the weather warms up over the next few days, the snow-batterd western New York city now faces serious flooding.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says it’s more flooding than they’ve seen in a very long time, and says the state is sending boats, helicopters and high-axle vehicles to help during the flood emergency.
The Buffalo area was hammered by about 2 meters of lake-effect snow off Lake Erie over three days. That’s more than the city has seen in over 40 years.
The storm is being blamed in at least 12 deaths.
Ontario’s Niagara Regional Police are lending two snowmobiles to the Lackawanna Police Department in the Buffalo area to help them navigate the mountains of snow.
