PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo says the state is continuing its preparations for what she says could be “a very severe and dangerous weather event.”

The state is under a blizzard warning beginning 7 p.m. Monday for heavy snow and high winds. The National Weather Service is forecasting around 2 feet of snow before the storm winds down after midnight Tuesday, with winds gusting to 70 mph.

Raimondo urged people to make sure they have enough food, water and fuel for the next few days and to be alert for updated information.

She asked people to help keep fire hydrants clear of snow and make sure that generators used for supplemental power are operated away from homes and in well-ventilated areas.
