Hamburg Warns Residents Not to Travel in Snow


HAMBURG, N.Y. - There is now a travel ban and state of emergency in the Town of Hamburg. Leaders say it's not safe to go on the roads because of the snowy conditions.

The Town of Hamburg issued the following statement on the travel conditions tonight:

"
As the evening progresses, the lake effect snow band will again visit Hamburg. According to our latest report from the National Weather Service, the band will intensify, and oscillate as far north as Blasdell between 7pm and 12am. While here, the band's heaviest snowfall rates are expected to be 2-3" per hour, depositing another 12-18" of snow. This snowfall combined with sustained winds in the 15-20mph range, gusting to 30 mph will bring extremely hazardous driving conditions. After midnight, the snowfall rates slow to 1-2" per hour as the band settles back into ski country.
