ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says New Yorkers should prepare for possible floods and storm damage associated with heavy rains and the approach of Hurricane Joaquin.

State officials say a storm that moved through Tuesday and Wednesday dumped several inches of rain on much of New York and could cause minor to moderate localized flooding in many areas. Flood watches remain in effect for many counties.

Joaquin is now located near the central Bahamas and is expected to head north over the next several days, raising the possibility that it could bring heavy rains to New York and other parts of the northeast beginning this weekend.

Cuomo says residents should monitor the weather forecast in the days ahead and plan ahead by reviewing their emergency plans and supplies.
