Biden sends federal aid to help clean up after massive ‘lake effect’ snowstorm

Joe Biden is sending federal aid to western New York state to help authorities clean up after a massive storm dumped as much as 6ft of snow in western and northern areas.

The emergency declaration authorises the US Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate disaster relief in 11 counties hit by the “lake-effect” snowstorm on Friday and Saturday.
