New York National Guard responds to historic snowfall in Western New York

New York Air National Guard Airmen from the 107th Airlift Wing based in Niagara Falls, N.Y., assist in snow removal efforts from the roof of the Eden Heights Assisted Living Facility in West Seneca, N.Y., Nov. 19. The facility, like much of Western New York in Erie County, experienced historic levels of lake effect snowfall that paralyzed the City of Buffalo and area roads, businesses and communities. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo directed the mobilization of more than 240 National Guard Soldiers and Airmen from area units to assist local authorities with snow removal or traffic control as regions of Western New York see more than six feet of snowfall in just 72 hours.
