Patrick declares state of emergency for Sandy

The National Weather Service has issued high wind warnings for much of Southern New England through Monday night, saying widespread power outages are possible as Hurricane Sandy slams into the East Coast.

The service has also issued flood watches, saying two to four inches of rain could fall, with as much as five inches in higher terrain. Coastal flood warnings have also been issued for the south coast, while flood watches remain in effect along the East Coast. Moderate coastal flooding is likely, with major flooding possible in Narragansett Bay, forecasters said.
