RICHMOND - Even though many localities were closed Monday because of Hurricane Sandy, Virginia State Police kept busy helping drivers who ventured out in the storm.

Across the state, from midnight Sunday to 2:00 p.m. Monday,  troopers responded to 377 traffic crashes, 438 disabled vehicles, and received a total of 3,154 calls for service.

Spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Anaya said there were no fatalities reported.

While more rain and heavy winds are expected through Tuesday, all available troopers will be on the highways to help with crashes and storm-related incidents.

Va. State Police advise drivers to avoid traveling during the storm because conditions remain hazardous.
