NEW YORK -- CBS News learned Monday of new threats of a possible terror attack in New York City as a direct result of the escalating violence in the Middle East.
Gov. Kathy Hochul is already taking action to beef up security and increase staffing of the Joint Terrorism Task Force following a new threat assessment by the New York State Intelligence Center that violence in Gaza is driving chatter about targets in New York.
"I am working hard at the state level. With the control I have, I'll be talking about this tomorrow, about exactly what we're doing, on how many online threats we've uncovered, how many have been investigated, what the outcome is," said Hochul.
