Areas Still Without Power, High-Rise Well-Being Checks, Obama Visiting Next Week at Sandy-Stricken Northeast

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said all of the utility companies in the New York City area failed residents in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. His comments came as hundreds of residents protested outside the Long Island Power Authority on Saturday.

Medical teams were sent to parts of New York City hit by Superstorm Sandy to make sure residents in high-rise buildings are getting their medical needs met. Some residents haven’t had water, power or heat for 12 days.

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.
