President Barack Obama met with top officials at the FEMA headquarters in Washington DC on Sunday evening to discuss plans for the agency's Hurricane Sandy emergency response.
President Obama said afterwards, "We all owe a debt of thanks to the first responders who will be dealing with the immediate impact of the storm."
