The National Response Coordination Center in Washington is where FEMA is managing the deployment of federal resources and teams to states along the East Coast ahead of the big storm.
The White House says Obama will participate in a briefing on the storm and receive updates on federal efforts to help local responders in areas in the storm's path.
Later Sunday the president will head to Florida where he's campaigning on Monday.
