WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says he's confident that state and federal governments have done all they can to prepare for the superstorm barreling up the East Coast.

He says the slow-moving storm will affect millions of people, and he is urging Americans to heed warnings.

Obama was speaking from the White House briefing room. He said the key is to make sure the public is following instructions to take precautions.

A week from Election Day, he says he's not worried about the impact of the storm on his re-election chances. And he says that the No. 1 priority is to make sure lives are saved.
