Blizzard in Buffalo shows ethnic and social divisions in the divisive city

Buffalo is recovering from its deadliest disaster in a decade. Authorities say more than 30 people have died, found in their homes, cars and outside in snowbanks. Buffalo is under a driving ban because many of its streets are clogged. In predominantly Black parts of the city, many residents still can’t leave their homes. Buffalo’s slow, haphazard plowing and response has also drawn the ire of county leaders.
