New York faces first snowstorm of new year

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City is facing its first snowstorm of the winter — and the first test of new Mayor Bill de Blasio hours after he was sworn in.

De Blasio says he and other city officials are "focused like a laser" on protecting the city and its residents.

The storm comes about three years after the former public advocate criticized then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg for failing to lead a quick cleanup. Days passed before de Blasio's Brooklyn block was cleared.

The National Weather Service says up to 8 inches could hit the city.

Long Island is under a blizzard warning, with wind gusts up to 45 mph and up to 10 inches of snow predicted by Friday.

Areas from Buffalo to Albany are expecting up to 14 inches.
