WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama had a conference call Saturday to discuss Hurricane Sandy with the Homeland Security secretary, the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the director of the National Hurricane Center and his homeland security adviser.

Obama received an update on the big storm during the flight to New Hampshire before he campaigned in the state.

The White House says Obama made clear to emergency management officials that the federal government should do all it can to provide resources to state and local officials along the East Coast as they brace for the approaching storm.
