Gov. Cuomo banned all travel in New York City because of a massive snowstorm that could dump 30″ of snow on the city.
Cuomo announced a ban on roads in all of lower New York State. Port Authority bridges and tunnels into New York City were also closing. The travel ban was to start at 2:30 p.m.
He said the shutdown would be orderly so that people could get home from work. The ban included Long Island highways.
The governor warned that if you are caught on the road during a ban you could face a large fine. He did not specify what that fine would total.
