Buffalo gets massive snowfall

At least two people have died in connection with an "extreme" lake-effect snowstorm in western New York that could dump up to 6 feet of snow in the Buffalo region.

Two Erie County residents died from cardiac arrest "related to exertion during shoveling/snow blowing," Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said Friday.

A state of emergency has been declared for Erie County, which includes Buffalo, as the potentially historic snowstorm hits the region.

A countywide driving ban went into effect Thursday night, with only those authorized for emergency travel allowed to drive. It was temporarily lifted in Buffalo Friday morning, before being reinstated for the city, Poloncarz announced.

South Buffalo in particular has been hit "incredibly hard," Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said during a press briefing Friday, prompting officials to reimpose the travel ban.
