New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appealed to Congress on Monday for billions in aid to assist the state's recovery effort following superstorm Sandy. Estimated damages are between $40 and $50 billion.
Cuomo, a Democrat, put the damage from the late October storm at $40 billion to $50 billion for New York alone, with the total likely to rise.
"We need help. These are big numbers, even for New York," he told a news conference while flanked by members of the state's congressional delegation.
