Cuomo Declares State of Emergency for All of NYS



 NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says some major commuter highways around New York City will be shut down overnight as a coastal storm brings snow and blizzard conditions to the region.

Cuomo says Interstate 84 in the Hudson Valley will be closed to commercial traffic starting at 5 p.m. Thursday and to all traffic at midnight. He says the Long Island Expressway will also be closed at midnight in Nassau and Suffolk counties and the Thruway will be closed from Albany south.
  
Cuomo says plans are for the highways to reopen at 5 a.m. Friday, but a decision will be made by 4 a.m.
  
The governor also declared a statewide state of emergency Thursday and urged people to "seriously consider staying in their homes."
  
He says mass transit isn't expected to be hampered.
