According to a White House official yesterday, US President Barack Obama will ask Congress for 60.4 billion dollars in emergency funds to repair devastation from Super-storm Sandy, which hit the US east coast in October.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the package would enable their states to "recover, repair, and rebuild better and stronger than before.

Sandy, whipping up hurricane force winds and a storm surge, roared ashore on October 29th, killing more than 110 people, flooding the New York subway system and knocking out electricity for hundreds of thousands of people.
