New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has activated the state's emergency crews to monitor Hurricane Sandy as it works its way north.

The "super storm" forecast for early next week is expected to include heavy rain, high winds, flooding, tornados, coastal surges and possibly snow.

Widespread power outages are possible.

Cuomo is asking New Yorkers to monitor their TVs and radios for weather alerts.

He's also urging people to prepare storm kits. They include non-perishable food, water, cash, filled prescriptions, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, first aid kit, flashlights and extra batteries.
