Parts of Upstate New York slammed with more than 2 feet of snow

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)– It’s cold out and windy in Buffalo, but the snow we got here pales in comparison to other parts of the state.

This first major snowstorm of the season dumped more than two feet of snow on parts of Upstate New York.

According to the National Weather Service, the lake-effect storms that started over the weekend dropped up to 18 inches in the Binghamton area and 23 inches in Redfield north of Syracuse, and those numbers are still climbing.

It also caused more than 10 thousand power outages around the Rochester area. Several schools from Rochester east to Central New York called off classes today.

A school bus taking students from Rochester to New York City crashed and overturned along a snowy upstate highway, injuring 3 students.

Fortunately the storm is expected to wind down later today.

Genesee and Orleans Counties are still going to see more snow fall tonight. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
