The impending Winter storm has forced a state of emergency to be declared statewide, beginning at midnight Tuesday.
Governor Cuomo says that any unnecessary travel is unwise because of the projected snowfall rates of 2 to 4 inches per hour.
The State Emergency Operations Center has been activated with stockpiles of sandbags, generators and pumps at the ready.
The Governor has also announced that all non-essential state employees in all parts of the state except for the North Country have Tuesday off.
