SHARE Obama’s overnight: Hurricane Sandy briefings, disaster declarations

WASHINGTON–As Hurricane Sandy raged through the east coast and beyond Monday night this is what President Barack Obama was doing, according to a White House official:

“Throughout the night, the President was updated on the impacts of Sandy as it came ashore and moved inland. Overnight the President also spoke with New York Governor Cuomo, New Jersey Governor Christie, New York City Mayor Bloomberg, Jersey City Mayor Healy and Newark Mayor Booker. The President will also receive another briefing this a.m.

“Overnight the President also provided major disaster declarations for the states of New Jersey and New York – building on resources already available – and providing additional federal support for state and local efforts, as well as direct federal assistance to affected individuals in declared counties.”
