Man 'Salts' Roads in Upstate New York

A resident of Niagara Falls, New York, shared footage of his attempt to “salt the roads” after the area experienced heavy snowfall on November 11.

Samar Hamilton, who runs The Action Niagara Falls social media accounts, joked that he was doing his part to service the community as he held a small saltshaker from his car window. Temperatures were forecast to dip to 25 F on Tuesday, the National Weather Service (NWS) reported.

The NWS reported that Monday’s snowfall totals broke a 77-year-old record in nearby Buffalo for November 11, with 8.7 inches falling. The previous record of 5.3 inches was set in 1942. Credit: The Action Niagara Falls via Storyful
