A new official storm total of 2.06 m (81.2 inches) has been recorded in Hamburg, Erie County, New York from November 16 to 20, 2022.

This surpasses the total for Orchard Park, NY at 2.03 m (80.0 inches) for the most recent lake effect snow emergency, extreme meteorologist Reed Timmer reports.

This video shows the scenes around Hamburg, NY of the heaviest snowfall that contributed to this record-breaking snow event.
