NEW YORK (1010 WINS/AP) --  Slick roads from the latest nor'easter to hit the area are to blame for at least one death on Long Island.

A woman was killed and five other people were injured Wednesday when a van overturned on the Wantagh State Parkway in Nassau County, Newsday reported.

The accident happened around 10 a.m. Wednesday, just as snow accumulation started to pick up.

On Long Island, accumulations could reach 11 to 15 inches in Nassau County, and 7 to 10 inches in Suffolk County.

Both Mayor de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo are urging people to stay off the roads as the storm threatens to dump a foot of snow or more across the Tri-State area.

"This is a serious storm and should not be taken lightly," Cuomo said Wednesday morning. "If you don't have to travel, please don't travel."
