WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is warning the public that the massive storm that struck the East Coast “is not yet over.”

The president says there are still risks of flooding and downed power lines. He called the storm “heartbreaking for the nation.”

The president offered his thoughts and prayers to those affected and told them “America is with you.” He said he also told government officials coordinating the response that there was “no excuse for inaction.”

And he said he told governors in affected areas that if they get no for an answer, “they can call me personally at the White House.”

Obama is speaking during a stop Tuesday at Red Cross headquarters. He planned to stay in Washington through Wednesday, scrapping three straight days of campaigning to deal with the storm.
