Cuomo's new weather detection plan

Posted by Matt Ryan on
Storm Damage

Governor Cuomo had to deal with his share of "100 Year Storms" in his first term.  In late summer of 2011, Tropical Storms Irene and Lee pummeled upstate from Binghamton to Lake Placid.  One year later, Superstorm Sandy devastated the five boroughs and Long Island and just two months ago a lake effect snow storm dumped seven feet of snow in parts of Buffalo.  Now, the governor is hoping a new weather detection system will help the state and localities better prepare for these costly storms.

Our Jenna Flanagan takes a look at it and asks experts if it will actually provided significant help in the forecasting of these weather events.
