Massive snowstorm prompts Gov. Cuomo to declare emergency


NEW YORK (AP) – Gov. Andrew Cuomo has declared a state of emergency as a massive storm blankets New York with up to two feet of snow.

Cuomo says New Yorkers should stay inside Saturday and avoid driving.

He says there are no plans to shut New York City subways, Metro-North or the Long Island Rail Road but service may be curtailed.

MTA bus service in New York City will be shut down at noon.

Port Authority Executive Director Patrick Foye says most bus service out of the Port Authority Bus Terminal is canceled. But Foye says Greyhound buses are operating.

New Jersey Transit has canceled bus service.

Cuomo, Foye and other officials spoke at a briefing at the governor’s Manhattan office.
