Obama to travel to New York to view Sandy recovery
Friday - 11/9/2012, 2:19pm EST
WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says President Barack Obama will travel to New York on Thursday to view recovery efforts from the massive East Coast storm Sandy.
White House press secretary Jay Carney says Obama will meet with affected families, local officials and first responders who have been dealing with the major storm. New York officials estimate damage from Sandy could total $33 billion in the state.
Sandy rattled parts of New York City and New Jersey with a storm surge reaching 14 feet, killing more than 100 people and leaving millions without power.
Obama traveled to the New Jersey coastline on Oct. 31 to meet with Gov. Chris Christie and view recovery efforts in coastal communities.
