Floods prompt Cuomo to declare state of emergency

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, N.Y. -

The floods forced Gov. Andrew Cuomo to declare a state of emergency in New York.

The governor made the declaration Tuesday night.

It covers six counties in northeastern of New York, including two in our area-- Essex and Franklin counties.

A state of emergency allows state resources to be used to help local governments. It also temporarily suspends laws and regulations that would slow down a rapid response.
