Another 2 to 3 feet of snow is expected to fall in the Buffalo area today. This comes in addition to the 5 feet already on the ground in some areas of western New York.

The extreme snowfall and plunging temperatures have left several people dead.

The National Guard is working to clear the roads, but as snow continues to pile up, Erie County officials are warning residents and businesses of potential roof collapses and forecasts of warm weather that could mean flooding.

WBFO news director Brian Meyer spoke with Here & Now's Robin Young about how the Buffalo area is coping.
