As thousands of people are still without homes and power in New York, President Obama will make his first tour throughout the state to see the damaged first-hand and help aide in the Hurricane Sandy relief effort.
During his trip, the President will take an aerial tour with NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Mike Bloomberg and meet with first responders as well as victims of the superstorm that swept through the East Coast. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan will also travel through the ravaged areas with Obama.
In addition, Obama will pay a visit to one of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster recovery centers and walk through neighborhoods affected by the storm. NY Democratic Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand will also travel with the President aboard Air Force One.
Before the election, the POTUS also met with Gov. Chris Christie to tour the ravaged areas of New Jersey.
