This photo from the National Guard shows New York Air National Guard Airmen clearing snow near Buffalo, New York, November 21, 2014Record-breaking snowfall that buried towns near Buffalo, New York, and killed at least 14 people, posed a major flooding threat Saturday with temperatures forecast to rise. Areas of western New York that got socked with more than six feet (two meters) of snow this week had been on flood watch but now are under a flood warning, the National Weather Service said. A flood warning urges people to prepare for a possibility, while a more serious flood warning is issued when flooding is imminent or occurring. The warning was in effect in northern Erie, Genessee, Wyoming, Chatauqua, Cattaraugus, southern Erie counties, including the cities of Buffalo, Batavia, Warsaw, Jamestown, Olean, Orchard Park and Springville, the service said.
