Communities preparing for possible flooding

Officials are warning residents to be ready to move cars and valuables to higher ground later today once rain moves into southwestern Connecticut.

A storm is expected to bring heavy rain and flooding to the region today and tomorrow.

In Greenwich yesterday, volunteers spent part of the afternoon filling sandbags.

Officials say the sandbags are just one way they hope to prevent floodwaters from getting into people's homes.
