    (NECN: Warwick, RI) - Rhode Island residents are being asked to
    limit their water and electricity usage, as the flooding has
    knocked out sewer and power infrastructure across the state.



    Officials in Warwick and Cranston in particular are asking
    people not to flush toilets unless absolutely necessary, do laundry
    or do anything else that would cause water to go into the sewage
    system.

    National Grid has asked people statewide to conserve energy
    because of substation problems that have knocked out power in the
    Westerly area.

    Roads around the state are swamped, and Interstate 95 is closed
    in Warwick. State police say traffic backups are particularly bad
    in the Warwick area.
