Obama: ‘Transportation is going to be tied up for a long time’ by Hurricane Sandy

“So the public should anticipate that there's going to be a lot of power outages and it may take time for that power to get back on,” Obama continued. “The same is true with transportation; there are going to be a lot of backlogs. And even after the storm has cleared, it's going to take a considerable amount of time for airlines, subways, trains and so forth, potentially, to get back, you know, on schedule, depending on the amount of damage that has occurred.”
