NYC snow storm: Mayor Bloomberg decided to declare a weather emergency as a result of NYC snow fall.

The National Weather Service issued a weather warning from 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday through 6 a.m. ET on Thursday as piles of snow growing. The warning is for NYC, Westchester and Rockland counties, Long Island and part of northeast New Jersey.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says some express subway trains may run on local tracks Thursday morning, and some subways may not run all the way to the end of the line.

The Long Island Rail Road is expected to run on a reduced rush hour-schedule, with 14 westbound trains canceled, and buses will replace some trains.

Mayor Bloomberg said to reporters during a new conference, “Hopefully, no one will die because of this storm.

Bloomberg said, “In response, we have issued a weather emergency declaration. This means we have suspended all city rules that would require a driver to move a car for any reason.”

New York has seen over 36 inches of snow so far this winter. ,Airport delays and cancellations include up to five-hour arrival delays at Newark Liberty and New York La Guardia airports.

Mayor Bloomberg also indicated possible NYC school closings would be announced at 5 a.m. ET. Some parents did not send their children to public school today in the face of snow falling at 8 a.m. ET.
