Cool drone's eye view of 'snovember' storm in New York

Snowfall totals around Buffalo, N.Y., are now more than five feet and more snow is forecast. What's all that snow look like from above? 

What's the mega snowfall look like from the sky? 

James Grimaldi of West Seneca, N.Y., posted a video Tuesday to YouTube taken from a drone of the storm. As the drone emerges from the garage, it looks like there's at least three feet of snow piled outside the door.  The drone then tours the neighborhood. West Seneca is about five miles southeast of downtown Buffalo. 

The Associated Press reports that Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown says firefighters are using 18 snowmobiles to respond to emergency calls related the lake-effect storm that dumped more than four feet of snow on areas around the city.

Brown said during a morning news conference Wednesday that crews have made progress removing snow from South Buffalo streets, but it's a "slow haul" getting to some snow-clogged areas.

A driving ban still in effect in South Buffalo and officials are asking people to stay off the roads, despite the sunny weather Wednesday. Brown said residents of nearby towns have been driving into the city south end and getting stuck in deep snow.

Another storm is expected to hit the area Wednesday night and dump an additional 2 to 3 feet of snow on the Buffalo area.
