Winter supply in high demand

Fingers are crossed this next system isn't what forecasters are predicting because some winter staples are in high demand.

"The trucks can only move so fast to get salt across the state, so what we're experiencing right now is a very high demand because of all the snow we've had so far this season," says  DOT Spokesperson, Carol Breen.

New York City and Long Island are already facing steep shortages for road salt, but luckily upstate is only feeling a minor impact.

"Usually a shipment, if we order salt, it takes 1-2 days in this case it's taking 7-10 days and in some cases 10 days for us to get the order in," says Albany County Executive, Dan McCoy.

The state and local municipalities says it's winters like this that force them to be proactive.

"We have enough for the immediate future and we have an order in, so hopefully we have enough," says Troy's Deputy Mayor, Peter Ryan.
