Gov. Cuomo: Extreme weather is new reality
State and county officials worked together at the Transportation Management Center in Hawthorne Tuesday to keep Westchester residents safe.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo visited the center to discuss the storm with officials. State police, the Thruway Authority, the Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security were all gathered there to strategize.
The governor told News 12 he was happy with the response from officials during the storm.
"On this one, we were ahead of it. The forecast was a little bit off, but we adjusted, and I feel good about where we are right now," he said.
Cuomo said he has had twice the number of emergencies in his six years as governor than his dad did in 12.
"Mother Nature threw us a bit of a curveball...We had to get everybody back from New York City and Long Island to the mid-Hudson and central New York, but we did that effectively... We have almost too much experience in this now. The extreme weather is the new reality."
