Dear Rhode Islander:
With Hurricane Sandy making its way up our coast and the National Weather Service predicting that Rhode Island could be affected, I want to make sure Rhode Islanders have some key resources to prepare for the storm and its potential aftermath.
Follow the Path of the Storm: The National Hurricane Center provides up-to-date information about the status of Hurricane Sandy. Click here.
Hurricane Preparedness Guide: Click here for information about what to do before, during, and after a storm.
State of Rhode Island Emergency Phone Numbers: Click here for a list of emergency contacts in each of Rhode Island’s cities and towns. And visit the RI Emergency Management Agency’s website here for additional information.
My Office: If you need help after the storm finding resources related to hurricane recovery, please visit our Agency Assistance page so we can help you.

While this is not a comprehensive list of resources, I do hope that this is helpful for you and your family. Please be sure to stay safe.
