'Cold snap threatens Sandy homeless' warns NY governor

The governor of New York state, Andrew Cuomo, has said that tens of thousands of people affected by the superstorm a week ago could soon need housing because of an expected cold snap.

Hundreds of thousands of people remain without electricity supplies and the authorities say fuel shortages will continue for a number of days.

Mr Cuomo made the comments at a news conference after meeting other officials involved in the relief effort.
