Snow Strands Hundreds Of Drivers in Western NY

Location: Buffalo, NY
December 2, 2010

Hundreds of cold and hungry motorists were stranded on a western New York highway Thursday December 2 2010 after an accident caused a backup and the idling trucks and cars got stuck overnight in heavy snow.
Authorities said 16 miles of eastbound lanes along Interstate 90 were shut Thursday in Buffalo’s eastern suburbs, along with a 10-mile westbound stretch. The storm buried the southern neighborhoods of Buffalo and the city’s southern and eastern suburbs under two feet of snow, but largely spared downtown. In Pennsylvania’s Erie region, the National Weather Service issued a lake effect snow advisory through Friday morning. Some areas could get up to ten inches of snow from two weather systems moving in over the next 24 hours.
