Rhode Island flooding continues, and though several parts of the Northeast are underwater this evening, Rhode Island remains hardest hit.
The Associated Press reports:
Rhode Island Gov. Don Carcieri asked residents Tuesday afternoon to get home by dinnertime to avoid traveling in what officials expect to be the most severe flooding to hit the state in more than 100 years.
"The worst is still ahead of us," he said during a broadcast carried live on the state's major TV stations. "We're in a serious, serious situation."
National Guard troops were activated in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, where neighborhoods still recovering from earlier flooding were again swamped after two days of unrelenting rain.
