    Even though the worst of Sandy has passed, President Obama warned Americans that many areas are still at risk for more flooding and more damage. Speaking at the Red Cross Tuesday, the President said, “This storm is not yet over.” He praised officials for their coordination efforts and response, but said his message going forward to them is “no bureaucracy. No red tape.” In an earlier call with East Coast governors, Obama promised to make all resources available to relief and recovery effort, the White House said. The president will travel to New Jersey Wednesday to survey the devastation there alongside Gov. Chris Christie.
