Tropical storm Sandy is forecast to send winds gusting as high as 50 mph across parts of Indiana on Tuesday while the state sends utility crews and emergency responders to other states to help deal with its fury.

The National Weather Service in Indiana said Monday the gusty winds will be the storm's largest direct impact on Indiana.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security says it sent more than 100 people and 24 ambulances to other states.

Indiana Michigan Power Co. and Indianapolis Power and Light Co. have sent 160 utility crew employees to help restore power from outages resulting from the storm.

An Indianapolis International Airport spokesman says Sandy led to the cancellation of more than 70 flights that were due to arrive or depart Sunday night and Monday.
