New York mayor: Snowstorm will 'pack a real punch'



This will most likely be one of the largest blizzards in the history of New York City. I’m asking everyone to understand that and to prepare accordingly. This is not going to be like other snowstorms. It is going to be, by all indications, worse and people have to be ready.
We are, today, issuing a weather - winter weather state of emergency and we will be taking additional actions this afternoon to secure our roads and our city to make sure our people will be safe. The priority right now is anything related to the safety of our people, and I want to emphasize throughout everything you’re going to hear from us, that we want to put safety first in all we do. And that comes down to the decisions of everyday New Yorkers.
People have to make smart decisions from this point on, careful decisions. Recognize this as an emergency. It is not business as usual and if my fellow New Yorkers join me in doing the smart and safe thing, we are all going to get through this okay. But everything we know, so far, makes clear you can’t underestimate this storm.
This is not a typical storm, it’s going to pack a real punch and we have to expect heavy accumulation over a very short period of time. This is another crucial point. Some storms come in in a measured manner. This is going to come in in a sudden spurt of activity. We saw some flurries this morning and that has largely dissipated but what you’re going to see in the few hours is something that hits very hard, and very fast, and people cannot be caught off guard.
Best thing to do: stay indoors, stay off the roads, stay off the sidewalks. And this is something I want people to start acting on as quickly as possible. I’m ordering that at 11 o’clock tonight, our streets will only be available to emergency vehicles – so all non-emergency vehicles need to be off the streets of New York City by 11pm tonight. And we will continue that emergency declaration until the situation is safe.
