SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The City of Syracuse says it has issued no specific orders, but is hoping the public will heed warnings about the storm moving across the region.
City leaders have been coordinating their response with the county and state and have additional manpower on standby.
The mayor is urging people to stay off the road at the height of the bad weather to allow public safety agencies greater access in the event of emergencies.
"If you can stay at home, stay at home. Look after your neighbors and realize that the more people that are at home means the faster that we can get to people that are in danger. And the faster that we can clean up after this incident," said Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner.
The mayor says decisions on traffic advisories and other steps to deal with weather conditions will be made as the severity of the storm becomes clear.
