President rushes back to White House over Sandy emergency

By Edith Leung

Sandy, downgraded from a hurricane to a post-tropical storm, blew through DC on Monday night, leaving at least 11 dead and 5.3 million people without power. President Barack Obama canceled his campaign trip to Florida and rushed back to the White House to deal with the Sandy emergency.

The president warned East Coast Americans that “this is going to be a big and powerful storm,” but he believes all across the eastern seaboard appropriate preparations were being made.

The so-called “superstorm” is hitting tens of millions citizens living on the East Coast of the United States and has made landfall in New Jersey. In Washington D.C, the storm is strengthening as shops stay closed.
