New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency on Saturday, making New York the eleventh state to do so. Cuomo also declared a downstate travel ban, shutting down all roads and subway services on Saturday, New York Daily News reported. The ban includes New York City, Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley, including Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties. New York City and state roads, plus bridges and tunnels, will be closed starting at 2:30 pm. Only emergency vehicles are allowed out. In addition, above-ground subway stations closed by 4 pm and Metro-North and Long Island Railroad service stopped at the same time. It's not clear yet when the ban will be lifted, but snow is expected to continue through Saturday night.
