Obama Says Hurricane Sandy Is a ‘Serous and Big Storm’

Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama said Hurricane Sandy is a “serious and big storm” and urged those affected “to take this very seriously” and follow the advice of state and local officials.

“We don’t know yet where it’s gonna hit,” the president said after a meeting at the Federal Emergency Management Agency in Washington with the various agencies involved. The storm may be “slow moving,” he said.

Asked if the storm will affect voting in the Nov. 6 elections, Obama said, “We don’t anticipate that at this point, but we’re oviously going to have to take a look.”
