Gov. Cuomo declares state of emergency in 13 counties

Saturday's snowstorm prompted Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) to declare a state of emergency in 13 counties in the state, including Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties.

Cuomo held a press conference yesterday afternoon in Valhalla along the Taconic Parkway, which was littered with trees. The governor said resources have been directed to the areas hit hardest by the storm, in particular, Northern Westchester. He also advised people to stay off the roads, if possible, as storm cleanup was under way.

"There is still a lot of work to be done. And if you don't need to be out on the roads, you shouldn't be on the roads," said Cuomo.
