Footage Shows “Looting Across Buffalo” As City Plunged Into Chaos After Blizzard


A winter storm barreled through Buffalo, New York, over the weekend and ended Christmas morning, but the emergency was far from over, as claims across social media indicate widespread looting.

“Looting in Buffalo being significantly downplayed by local media,” said one Twitter user. Local media outlet WGRZ reported, “New York State Police confirm reports of 2 looting incidents.” But judging by the footage posted on Twitter, looting appears to be widespread.

Good question.

Besides looting, the blizzard-related death toll hit 25 in the metro area this morning, according to Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz, surpassing deaths of the 1977 blizzard. Conditions were so severe that even emergency responders needed rescuing.
