HARTFORD - Gov. Dannel Malloy says that while Connecticut is prepared for Hurricane Sandy, people still need to heed all warnings and evacuate if they're told to.

"We have been hit before, and we've gotten back up," said Malloy. "We're about to get hit again, but if we're smart, we will come through this together."

Parts of Fairfield, Stamford and Bridgeport have already been evacuated.
