New York governor declares State of Emergency due to powerful snowstorm
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday declared a state of emergency for New York, Westchester and Long Island in light of severe snowstorm that hit the northeastern part of the United States, AzVision.az reports citing Sputnik.
During an interview with the news channel NY1, Cuomo said the combination of snow, wind and frigid temperatures create "terrible conditions" that are projected to further deteriorate on Thursday.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for parts of the US states of Delaware, Virginia and Maryland, as well as coastal New Jersey and New York.

Thousands of homes are reportedly left without power due to the storm.
