Sandy leaves devastation behind in N.Y., N.J.

(Continued)

Obama will visit New Jersey on Wednesday, touring damage with Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican with his own presidential aspirations. Christie said early Tuesday that 2.4 million New Jersey households were without power, twice the number that lost electricity during Irene.

Later in the day Christie toured the coastal towns by helicopter.

"I was just here walking this place this summer, and the fact that most of it is gone is just incredible," Christie said to Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, according to an Associated Press pool report.

The governor vowed to rebuild:

"This is the kind of thing New Jerseyans are built for — we're plenty tough, and now we have a little more reason to be angry after this," he said. "Just what we need in New Jersey — a chance to be a little more angry."
