NEW YORK - Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday night's snowstorm had statewide implications, with Long Island being the hardest hit.

While many Nassau roads are clear, Cuomo says Suffolk County roads have experienced some complications. Roughly 150 people were stranded in vehicles last night in Suffolk County, Cuomo says.

Cuomo deployed additional plows to Suffolk. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Mangano also sent additional resources.

Cuomo said New York would send resources to Connecticut and Massachusetts, where the situation is worse.

Suffolk bore the brunt of power loss. About 10,000 people were without power in Suffolk Saturday afternoon.

Cuomo urges New Yorkers to stay off the roads so plows and crews can do their jobs.
