Obama to tour hurricane damage in New Jersey

President Barack Obama will travel to New Jersey on Sunday to survey damage from Hurricane Irene.

The White House says Obama will visit the northern New Jersey town of Paterson, where flooding continues to cause problems as the state's rain-swollen rivers crest and slowly recede.

Hurricane Irene barreled up the East Coast over the weekend, killing several dozen people and causing billions of dollars in damage.
