Strom Recovery Aid Coming To WNY

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WNY News Now) – Federal aid is coming to Western New York, to assist state and local clean-up efforts following last week’s massive lake effect storm that dumped more than six feet of snow in our region.











The White House announced the news in response to the historic storm, which is now blamed for three deaths.

In total, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will coordinate disaster relief in 11 counties, including Chautauqua, where parts of the north county were impacted.







National Weather Service reported 80 inches of snow in the Buffalo suburbs of Hamburg and Orchard Park as of Monday, with some in the hardest hit areas still trying to dig out.
