Brown, Warren tour storm-damaged areas of Mass.
BOSTON (AP) -- Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren are touring the state to assess storm damage.
Brown was scheduled to begin the day with a visit to an operations center in Rehoboth before touring Westport and visiting the Dartmouth Council on Aging.
Brown was also scheduled to tour Quincy and Plum Island before going to a Red Cross shelter in Newbury and visiting Gloucester.
Warren was scheduled to visit flooded areas near Horseneck Beach in Westport and in Scituate.
Superstorm Sandy plunged hundreds of thousands of Massachusetts residents into darkness, but the state otherwise escaped the full brunt of the storm's fury.
Gov. Deval Patrick said Tuesday the state may be able to lend a hand to other states that were in the direct path of the storm.
