>> picture, again, this is the sound between long island and the east coast , the waves are getting pushed up there. let's go further north to narragansett .
>> reporter: good evening, brian, it certainly is, and over the next couple of hours, rhode island is bracing for the worst part of the storm, the worst rain, wind and flooding. we have been watching the flooding all day, up close to the sea wall in narragansett , starting to breach the high tide , and the waters just kept coming in. the police kept saying it was the worst flooding they have ever seen, and that was hours ago. high tide is expected again at 8:00. and that is the time where the governor says they could expect life-threatening flood levels. and all over massachusetts, the police were concerned people wouldn't take this storm seriously enough. and they made sure they warned people about about it. but a lot of people looking at the storm maps seeing the center cross over new jersey thought they would be okay. they realize now what a mistake that was. 80,000 people in the state are without electricity, there are rescue crews on the roads trying to clear trees from the roads. and we were in some coastal communities today that are completely under water. and as i said, the worst is yet to come.
>> all right, stephanie gosk in narragansett , where they're getting all the weather they can handle.
