President Obama visits storm ravaged areas along the Jersey shore.

Millions are still without power in the northeast in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Flood waters remain in many areas.

The scenes are overwhelming, the sheer scope of the disaster unimaginable all along the coast, from the battered New Jersey shore to flood waters that fill the streets of Hoboken, and further north in Rhode Island where homes were splintered or picked-up and pushed to the middle of the street.

President Obama joined New Jersey's Governor Chris Christie touring the devastation, an overwhelming first hand look at what Hurricane Sandy left behind.

In many areas city streets are still rivers.

Cars are useless, boats and kayaks now the only way to get around.

Support is moving in, with government caravans providing help and hope to those stranded by the storm.

"We're worried, we don't have a place to live, we're staying with friends and family. that only lasts so long. we're running out of food and everything," says Seaside Heights resident Kenny Gibson.

In New York City many of the subways are still underwater, although limited service could start sometime Thursday.
