De Blasio: NYC Ready for Travel Day Snow

De Blasio: NYC Ready for Travel Day Snow
3-5 inches of snow expected in Manhattan
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says the nation's largest city "is ready" for any potential snow around Thanksgiving.
Forecasters say New York could receive several inches of snow during a storm hitting Wednesday. Higher elevation areas west of the Interstate 95 corridor could see up to a foot of snow.
The nasty weather threatens to hinder travel on the day before Thanksgiving, which is one of the busiest days of the year.
De Blasio said the city had "very substantial" salt reserves needed to treat any slippery roads.
New York had one of the snowiest stretches in years after de Blasio took office in January; his administration was criticized for the handling of a pair of storms.
Preparations continued for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade despite the forecast.
