It’s too soon to tell how many people were left homeless by Superstorm Sandy, FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate told reporters in a conference call on Tuesday. 

“I wouldn’t even begin to guess,” Fugate said. “I’d also caution that the number of people at shelters probably wouldn’t be a good indicator of how many people’s homes have been impacted by flooding. We know a lot of people stay with friends and family.”
