Falls dodging harshest snows so far


A wind chill warning for all of Western New York, including Niagara County, is set to end at 6 p.m. today. 

Despite the high winds overnight, the city had no power outages as of 11 a.m. Tuesday, according to Mayor Paul Dyster.  

"We're obviously watching very closely for any changes in wind direction and weather patterns," Dyster said, referring to the trajectory of the snow band.

Roads were generally passable in Niagara Falls throughout the morning Tuesday. Dyster noted that, as has been the case in other parts of Western New York, road crews have not been applying road salt as they would under normal snowy conditions as the salt loses effectiveness once it reaches the sub-zero conditions. 

"I think at this point people just need to be very careful when it comes to icy road conditions," Dyster said.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
