Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gun enthusiasts fearful of new weapon controls and hearing false rumors of government hoarding are buying bullets practically by the bushel.
The demand is making it hard for gun stores to keep shelves stocked and even putting a pinch on some local law enforcement departments.
The run started in November with President Barack Obama's re-election, followed by the shooting in December of children in Newtown, Conn. That massacre led the president to launch an effort to strengthen federal gun controls and several states to tighten laws.
Connecticut became the latest on Thursday. Hours before the law went into effect, hundreds of customers streamed out of Hoffman's Gun Center in Newington with guns and boxes of ammunition. Similar scenarios are playing out all over the country.
