FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Officials on Long Island are monitoring developments as up to a foot of snow has started falling.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone (behl-OHN’) says there are no immediate plans for highway closures.

He says the storm is expected to be spread out over 12 to 14 hours. Bellone says that amount of time should give snowplow drivers enough time to keep up with the snowfall.

But Bellone warns that residents should monitor media updates as the storm continues.
