New York Governor Andrew Cuomo responded to the massive lake-effect snow in the Buffalo area by criticizing the National Weather Service’s (NWS) forecasts over the weekend, saying the agency failed to prepare the community for such a historic amount of snow.

‘Homeland’ Episode 9 recap: There’s something else going on
