Plows Work Through Night in Buffalo as Storm Recovery Continues

Recovery efforts continued in Buffalo, New York, on Friday, December 30, following a deadly, days-long winter storm.

Video posted by the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) at 1.30 am Friday morning shows several plow trucks carrying out snow and ice removal operations.

On Thursday evening, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz asked the public to allow plow crews space to work.

“The National Guard and our emergency crews will remain in the area and on the roads, so please make sure to give them room – some of these vehicles are very large and not typically on regular streets,” Poloncarz said.

At least 39 storm-related deaths had been confirmed in Erie County as of Thursday afternoon. Credit: NYSDOT via Storyful
