HAMBURG, NEW YORK: Meteorologist Reed Timmer is being lauded by netizens for his brave reporting amid chest-high snow. The ongoing record-breaking snowstorm has galloped the entire western New York, and it is expected to stay that way throughout this weekend as per reports. However, Timmer, starring in the Discovery Channel reality show ‘Storm Chasers’ was determined to go ahead and film himself as he contended with the 50-inch snow drifts in Hamburg on Friday night, November 18.

In the footage that he posted on his Twitter account, the brave storm chaser can be seen digging his way through the powder before gauging the exact height of snow. “Measured 50'' snowfall at 630 pm in Hamburg, NY outside the gas station along I90. Found a unimpeded flat area with wind coming from right side of this image. There are areas with more but I could not burrow far enough to reach those locations. @accuweather @NWSBUFFALO @JLAngeline,” Timmer tweeted. He also said, “There are areas with more but I could not burrow far enough to reach those locations.”

Hamburg was among the towns that took the hardest beating in the New York storm, which recorded more than six feet of snow in some of the western areas. Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz confimed that at least one building in Hamburg housing a bowling alley and barbecue couldn’t take the brunt of heavy snow and partially collapsed. “Conditions in the Ban zone are BAD,” said Poloncarz. “Do Not Drive. It is impeding our efforts to clear snow,” he warned.
 
Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown said in a press conference on Friday, November 18, that the south part of the city was "incredibly hard hit." “We want no driving whatsoever in that area of the city so the plows can do their work. We have now upwards of 55 plows in south Buffalo that are working to clear residential streets,” said Brown, reported the New York Post.

Growing up in the midwest we thought 6” was a blizzard.” Another wrote, "The EXACT reason why I live in Vegas!! Lol. I'm from Northern Jersey and I have had my share of the white crap that falls from the sky. I'm not a fan!! Lol. Just my opinion.”
