NY Gov. Cuomo says damage from Irene to hit $1B

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he expects damage in the state from Tropical Storm Irene to total $1 billion.

He's speaking Wednesday in Prattsville, a Catskills Mountain community that like many others was hard hit by the torrential rains and wind over the weekend.

He's joined by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Craig Fugate, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
