WASHINGTON--With Hurricane Sandy working its way up the east coast, President Barack Obama on Sunday is off the campaign trail and, after church, will visit the National Response Coordination Center at FEMA Headquarters.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is coordinating the federal government response for the monster storm coming in the final week for the election.

From the pool report: "While at FEMA the President will participate in a briefing on the storm and be updated on the ongoing efforts to support local preparedness efforts in potentially affected areas."
