Governor declares statewide emergency as winter storm Hercules nears.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday declared a state of emergency in New York and said he will close the Long Island Expressway in Nassau and Suffolk counties from midnight until 5 a.m. Friday.

"Statewide state of emergency declared --> stay off the roads if you can #blizzard #StormWatch #NYS," Cuomo posted on his Twitter account.

The governor also plans to close portions of the New York Thruway and I-84 ahead of a harsh blizzard that is set to hit the Northeast.
