The fatal snowstorms that left at least a dozen people dead might be over, but Buffalo, New York, still faces problems. Though it would seem like warmer weather would bring a reprieve to the inundated region, which got as much as 7 feet of snow in some places, flooding could potentially be an issue, USA Today wrote.

More than 80,000 tons of snow has been removed from the battered region, Time Warner Cable News reported. Now, Buffalo is preparing for a possible flood.

Preparations are being put in place, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted people who live near a flood-prone area should have their bags packed and be ready to evacuate. He visited Buffalo Creek and Cazenovia Creek and with Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown as he addressed the possible flood.

"Flooding, in my opinion, is worse than dealing with snow," Cuomo said, according to NBC News. "It's not water. It's a toxic brew."

"You can never prepare for the worst case scenario. We're anticipating a problem, and we're going to try to address it proactively," said Buffalo Fire Commissioner Garnell Whitfield, according to Time Warner Cable News.

Further, there’s a chance Buffalo could face more snow after the temperature drops again. In a place like Buffalo, it’s not just a dusting that will cover the region. AccuWeather senior meteorologist Jack Boston told USA Today Buffalo might get an additional foot Tuesday.

There are several school closings going into the week of Thanksgiving, the Buffalo News reported Sunday. Some districts will not open until after the holiday.

Some people in the area have made the most of the snow. One person shoveled out a vehicle so it looked like a dragon was taking a bite out of it. Another person used the enormous amount of snow as a beer cooler. Some pictures from the monster Buffalo snow have been posted below:
