Long Island, New York
Steven Bellone, County Executive
Heavy snow can immobilize a region and paralyze a city, stranding commuters, closing airports, stopping
the flow of supplies, and disrupting emergency and medical services. The weight of snow can cause roofs
to collapse and knock down trees and power lines. Homes and farms may be isolated for days and unprotected
livestock may be lost. In the mountains, heavy snow can lead to avalanches. The cost of snow removal,
repairing damages, and the loss of business can have severe economic impacts on cities and towns. See weather.gov for the latest forecast.
