WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- President Obama talked with FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate, National Hurricane Center Director Dr. Rick Knabb, and Homeland Security Advisor John Brennan about Hurricane Sandy on the phone Friday morning.

The president received an update on the storm and directed the FEMA administrator to "ensure that all available federal resources are being brought to bear to support state and local responders in potentially affected areas along the eastern seaboard..." according to a White House Press Office. FEMA is sending Incident Management Assistance Teams to states along the coast to help prepare for the storm.
