Governor Andrew Cuomo is directing state agencies to prepare for flooding issues across New York with heavy rainfall expected over the next two days.

Cuomo says the state Department of Environmental Conservation is closely monitoring the weather and has plans and personnel in place to deal with potential flooding.

He says the state Department of Transportation is also actively preparing for high water by readying equipment and staff.

“With heavy rain in the forecast, I am directing state agencies to prepare for potential flooding and I urge New Yorkers to exercise caution and stay safe,” Cuomo said. “New Yorkers should be ready for the possibility of hazardous travel conditions and state agencies will be on alert and be prepared to assist communities across the state if the need arises.”

The governor is also urging residents to take actions to ensure they're ready for any flooding.

There's a Flood Watch in effect for central New York through Saturday morning.
