WASHINGTON - In the midst of a political tempest that has engulfed his former CIA director and his top military commander in Afghanistan, President Barack Obama will travel to New York City to view recovery efforts from the massive East Coast storm Sandy.

While there, Obama will meet with affected families, local officials and first responders who have been dealing with the deadly storm, which slammed into New York, New Jersey and other East Coast states late last month, killing more than 100 people and leaving millions without power.

Obama traveled to New Jersey on Oct. 31 to meet with Gov. Chris Christie and view recovery efforts in coastal communities. Obama pledged to those affected by the storm that they would not be forgotten.
