    Parts of NY dig out after potentially ‘historic’ snowfall

    NEW YORK (AP) – Parts of New York finally caught a break on Sunday after a storm spent days dumping a potentially record-setting amount of snow on cities and towns east of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.

    Many businesses in the hardest-hit areas remained closed, but highways re-opened and travel bans in many areas were lifted, though bands of lake-effect snow were expected to bring up to 0.6 metres in some parts of the state that were largely spared in earlier rounds.

    “This has been a historic storm. Without a doubt, this is one for the record books,” New York Governor Kathy Hochul said at a briefing on Sunday.

    National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Alumbaugh, who is based in Buffalo, said it was too early to say whether any of this year’s snowfalls exceeded that record.
