The initial winter storm caused by the lake influence, brought on havoc on the streets and the closure of educational facilities in Erie County, western New York.
The effects of the blizzard were being obvious all over the Buffalo space.
Quite a few highway incidents have been documented throughout the day.
Quite a few flights have been canceled at Buffalo Niagara Worldwide Airport.
Large snowfall fell at a rate of 1 to 3 inches of snow for each hour.
The snow strip was slender, only about 10 miles vast, according to the National Meteorological Services.
But the storm is now breaking documents.
By 1 p.m., 14.1 inches of snow had fallen in the Buffalo Niagara Global Airport location.
Which is nearly double the old 7.3-inch day-to-day record established on January 6, 1974.
The total record for a January day is expected to be surpassed in the coming several hours.
The earlier report was set on January 11, 1982, when 18.3 inches of snow fell.
