Western New Yorkers are digging themselves out of a record-smashing snowstorm that has left some areas under more than six feet of white powder.

Over 16.1 inches of snow fell in Buffalo on Saturday, more than doubling the previous daily maximum snowfall record of 7.6 inches set in 2014, according to Fox Weather.

Orchard Park also broke the state record for most during a 24-hour period with 66 inches, shattering the previous record of 50 inches in Camden in 1966.that approximately 70 National Guard members have been sent to the Southtowns to help remove snow in the hardest hit areas including Orchard Park, where more than six feet of snow was recorded.

“We need to do the major roads first,” Hochul said. “We need to be able to ensure that any emergency vehicles and ambulances can get to individuals that have. That is our biggest concern right now.”
