It was on Nov. 17, 2014 that a massive lake effect snow storm moved into the Buffalo area.

Across Western New York, several feet of snow fell, lives were lost and homes and businesses suffered devastating damage. It's called a generational storm – something we may never experience again.


Local leaders got little to no sleep from the moment the first snow began falling.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz was right in the middle of it, leading the county's emergency response.

He sat down with Ryan Whalen to share his experiences from a week he'll never forget. Watch the full interview here:
