- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seeking to inject some urgency into getting tens of billions of dollars in new federal aid flowing to victims of Superstorm Sandy, but Congress seems reluctant.
- Gov. Chris Christie says Superstorm Sandy caused $36.8 billion in damage in New Jersey. Christie is requesting that amount, which is greater than his state's entire yearly budget, from the federal government.
- Folly Beach Mayor Tim Goodwin says he hopes federal approval for the effort will come soon. Goodwin says Sandy may have added another $1 million to the city's cost of beach renourishment.
