News Update for Mon., Feb. 3, 2014


NWS issues Winter Storm Watch for late Tuesday through Wednesday evening...

Get ready for the possibility of several inches of snow late Tuesday into Wednesday night.  The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch from Tuesday night through Wednesday evening.  Meteorologist Tom Paone in Buffalo says the forecasted storm track will bring the system close enough to Western New York to produce a significant snowfall.  He says there's the potential for at least 6 inches of snow for the entire region because this is a "general snowfall" system.  Paone says there will not be any lake effect because of much of Lake Erie remains ice covered. 


Reed says propane shortage, and high prices to blame on lack of federal comprehensive energy plan...

The current propane gas shortage and price spikes is proof the United States needs to strengthen both energy development and infrastructure to avoid such problems.  Those are the feelings of local Congressman Tom Reed... as temperatures nose-dive in the northeast again this week.  A Winter Storm is again on the way tomorrow night through Wednesday.  Reed says the shortage is proof that this is a "ramification for not having a comprehensive energy plan."  He adds that it's also proof of the need to boost natural gas production in New York.  Reed says it's causing a lot of instability in the region's market.  He adds that propane is a by-product of natural gas.  The Corning Republican says the shortage is primarily related to the lack of infrastructure to move the heating source to areas of need.  As for what Congress can do -- right now -- to help deal with the lack of propane... Reed says there's not much they can do.  He says they can only make sure there's no "price gouging" taking place... and, he says they are not seeing that right now.  Reed says the price of propane has skyrocketed from $2.80 a gallon last October to $3.80 a gallon last week.  He made his comments during his weekly telephone news conference with western New York Media.


Trump speaks to Erie County GOP this past weekend...

Real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump offered a preview last Friday night of what a Trump-for-governor campaign might look like.  At a local fundraiser in Buffalo... Trump called New York's new gun control laws a disaster, supported fracking for natural gas... and, criticized Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo's tax policies for businesses.  Trump was the featured guest at a $100-per-person event held by the Erie County Republican Party in suburban Buffalo.  The New York City developer has met with Republican leaders about a possible challenge to Cuomo.  But... he repeated Friday his condition that he'll only run if the state's Republican Party rallies behind him and he faces no challengers for the nomination.  Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino is also considering running.
