Cleanup efforts to clear the roads are “well underway,” Mr. DeGeorge said, with crews working to clear main roads, as well as secondary and residential roads. Crews are also working to remove all abandoned vehicles from the roads.
Still, an additional 3 to 5 inches of snow was expected in the region on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
The travel ban in Buffalo remained in place on Tuesday morning, though it was reduced to an advisory in the nearby community of Cheektowaga, Mark Poloncarz, the Erie County executive, announced.
About 4,000 people in Buffalo are still without power, Mr. DeGeorge said. The number of households without power in the city over the weekend was as high as 20,000, he added.
The Buffalo Niagara International Airport and all county offices in Erie County remained closed on Tuesday.
