KEANSBURG, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie has reassuring words for New Jersey children concerned about Superstorm Sandy.
The governor says they should "let the adults in your community take care of you. We'll be there for you."
Christie made the remarks Monday in Keansburg during a briefing on the storm.
The governor says he has been hugging distraught adults, but got choked up when he met a 9-year-old girl named Ginjer in the Port Monmouth section of Middletown whose family's home was destroyed.
