Barack Obama Puts Campaign on Hold; Mitt Romney Schedules ‘Storm Relief Events’

Douglas Graham/CQ Roll Call

Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Craig Fugate told CBS News that his agency is providing support to all Eastern states. “Primarily, right now ... we’re assisting in New Jersey along some of the coastal communities. But this is a rapidly changing situation,” Fugate said. “We are very closely linked up with West Virginia, about the snow, and what may be needed there.”

Areas in West Virginia and other higher elevations received multiple feet of snow from Sandy when it merged with a cold front as it moved onshore, creating an unusual event that the Weather Channel called a “superstorm.”
