CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Tri-State is seeing some of Superstorm Sandy's impact as the massive storm batters the East Coast.

A wind advisory that was in effect has been cancelled. Winds will remain strong and gusty, but will fall below the wind advisory criteria. Winds out of the northwest will be 20 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 35 to 40 miles per hour.

Scattered tree and power line damage is possible, along with some minor property damage. Be sure to secure any outdoor decorations or lawn furniture.

Some of the Tri-State, especially those east of the metro area, saw snow Tuesday morning. However, FOX19 chief meteorologist Steve Horstmeyer (@TrustSteve19) says ground temperatures are warm and air temperatures will be above freezing, so no slick driving is in the forecast. #truststeve

Power outages are also possible with the high winds. Be prepared by having flashlights with fresh batteries, non perishable food and first aid supplies. View more tips on surviving power outages from Duke Energy.

Travelers who are flying out of CVG to the East Coast should call their airline or check their flight status on CVG's website.
