EVANS, New York: Warm temperatures and rain were forecast for the weekend in the city of Buffalo and western New York, bringing the threat of widespread flooding to the region bound for days by deep snow. Areas where several feet of snow fell this week should brace for significant, widespread flooding, the National Weather Service warned yesterday.

A ferocious storm dumped massive piles of snow on parts of upstate New York, trapping residents in their homes and stranding motorists on roadways, as temperatures in all 50 states fell to freezing or below. Even hardened Buffalo residents were caught off-guard Tuesday as more than 5 feet fell in parts of the city by early Wednesday.

A snowfall that brought huge drifts and closed roads in the Buffalo area finally ended Friday, yet residents still couldn't breathe easy, as the looming threat of rain and higher temperatures through the weekend and beyond raised the possibility of floods and more roofs collapsing under the heavy loads. More than 30 major roof collapses, most involving farm and flat-roof buildings, were reported overnight, officials said Friday, after snow Thursday brought the Buffalo area's three-day total to an epic 7 feet or more.

Parts of New York measured the season's first big snowfall in feet, rather than inches, on Tuesday as nearly a metre of lake-effect snow blanketed the Buffalo area and forced the closure of a 212-kilometres stretch of the state Thruway. The waist-high snow blown by strong winds stopped even pedestrians in their tracks and motorists abandoned vehicles where they got stuck.

After a three-day onslaught that dumped a historic 7 feet of snow on the Buffalo area and killed at least 12 people, the sun came out Friday, but so did predictions of flooding caused by rain, temperatures up to 60 degrees and blocked catch basins. "We are preparing now for more flooding than we've seen in a long, long time," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

In the face of an unprecedented monster storm, with the undrifted snow standing higher than a man's head, they have pushed on with good spirits and determination, neither bemoaning their fate nor whining for outside help. They have stood up, offered a wry quip or two, and got on with the hard work of digging themselves and their neighbors out.
