Dunkirk Getting Blasted By Lake Effect Snow; Several Reports Of Accidents, Whiteout Conditions

DUNKIRK- Lake effect snow is dropping some pretty intense snowfall in extreme southern Erie and northern Chautauqua Counties, according to WNY News Now Chief Forecaster Dakota Hunter. 

He says there are reports of near whiteout conditions within this band along Rt. 60 and I-90.

State Police Eric Balon said,”my guys are busy responding to calls for cars off of the side of the road left and right.”

Balon said it took him nearly two hours to get from Dunkirk to Angola.

Affected areas include Dunkirk, Fredonia, Hamburg, East Aurora, Evans, Boston, Eden, Springville, Bennington and Colden. This includes the mainline Thruway between exits 57 and 60.

Shortly after 4:00, Chautauqua County reported a Dunkirk school bus sliding off of the road along W. 7th Street.

There were no reported injuries in that incident.



  1. JU JU gets suspended one game for that hit on Burfect that was a football play. The Gronk gets the same thing for hitting player out of bounds long after the play was whistled down. In the N H L if you did what Gronk did you might be looking at an assault charge and a criminal record. Check out what Burtuzy got for his hit on Moore when he was playing for the Vancouver Canucks I think it was one year suspension and millions of dollars in law suits

  2. I agree with Mike Mitchel leave the football plays alone clean up the dirty plays and the late hits!!
