President Obama will visit New Jersey tomorrow to tour the hurricane stricken coastline with Gov. Christie, the White House announced today.
A spokesman said the President will assess the storm damage, talk with citizens who are recovering from the storm and thank first responders who put their lives at risk to protect their communities.
In an unusual step, Obama has declared a "major" disaster for counties along the New Jersey coast, and for Long Island and the New York City area. The declaration means that the Federal Emergency Management Agency will provide assistance to individuals and to repair public buildings and roads.
