Hudson Valley digs out from snowstorm

The sounds of shovels digging into snow were heard across the Hudson Valley Wednesday, as residents cleaned up side streets after Tuesday's storm.



Many cars were plowed in up to a feet of snow and ice in New Rochelle, and it took many residents a long time to dig them out.



Many residents in downtown New Rochelle say they were being cautious as they made their way to work or to get a cup of coffee Wednesday morning. They say that although the weather is a nuisance, it's something they're used to.



City officials say there are no reports of power outages or any downed trees.



Health officials warn that shoveling snow can easily lead to heart attacks. They recommend waiting at least 30 minutes after waking up before shoveling, not eating a heavy meal, drinking coffee or smoking before shoveling. Officials also advise residents to take frequent breaks.
