HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Emergency officials are warning Pennsylvania residents that the weekend may bring severe weather in some areas.

The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency says any impact from Hurricane Joaquin is several days away, but forecasts are calling for rain and strong winds.

People in low-lying areas are being warned to prepare for possible flooding. Part of the state could also see strong gusty winds, and residents should consider securing or storing outdoor furniture, decorations or other items that could damage people or property.

Families are also urged to come up with an emergency plan and assemble an emergency kit for homes and cars.
