Sen. Kerry: Federal Aid in Place for Sandy

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — U.S. Sen. John Kerry says federal emergency management officials are on the ground in Massachusetts and ready to respond quickly to any and all impacts from Hurricane Sandy.

Kerry met with officials on Monday at the state’s emergency bunker in Framingham. He called Sandy a “monster storm” but said the state and federal response was well coordinated and he was confident that federal aid would come quickly if needed during or after the storm.

The Massachusetts Democrat noted that President Barack Obama had issued an emergency declaration prior to the arrival of the storm.

Kerry said his biggest concern was making sure residents are safe during the storm and there is no loss of life.
