The worst of it is over: An early-season snow storm is pulling out of the area, but there are still a few residual travel trouble spots.

As you can expect, there are several snow emergencies are in effect.

In Kingston, the city declared a snow emergency in effect this morning at 7 a.m. until further notice. Cars are required to park on the even side of the street starting at 9 a.m. This comes after the city suspended bus services yesterday.

In Newburgh, a snow emergency was declared yesterday at 6 p.m. and will still be in effect until further notice.

The snow was falling fast in a matter of hours, causing a hectic commute home for a lot of people. A viewer tells Spectrum News it took her almost three to get from the mall area to her home in Port Jervis last night.  

State Senator-elect James Skoufis says he's never seen anything like Thursday night, hearing stories about it taking hours for people to get home.  

Skoufis criticized DOT upper  anagement for what he says is a lack of preparation, calling their response embarrassing and unacceptable. We've reached out to the DOT for a response.

While it may have stopped snowing, roads haven't been cleared everywhere, so it's important to still be careful.
