Snowfall totals in Western New York have reached more than 6 feet in some areas.
Snow began coming down Thursday night in some spots, and ended up burying some people inside their homes.
Buffalo has seen the worst of the lake effect, with some spots still seeing some flurries.
Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park is buried under so much snow, Saturday’s Buffalo Bills game was moved to Detroit.
Erie County Executive, Mark Poloncarz, explained the situation better than anyone:
“When you have the equivalent amount of snow as Josh Allen is tall, which is 6 foot 5, it’s going to take some time to get in there and clean out the neighborhoods.”
Governor Kathy Hochul said crews are checking on trailer parks in the area, as those structures are at a higher risk of being damaged by the snow.
70 pieces of snow-removing equipment are still being used to clear snow in Buffalo. 30 of those were borrowed from the city of Rochester.
