NEW YORK (AP) - New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says cold temperatures mean "tens of thousands" of people whose homes were damaged by the superstorm will need other places to live.

He said Sunday that "it's going to become increasingly clear" as temperatures drop that homes without heat are uninhabitable. He says that means that residents who have been reluctant to leave their homes will be forced to and that they'll need housing.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had said Sunday that 30,000 to 40,000 people in the city could need housing help. Later, he said improving conditions would likely put that number closer to 20,000 as more power is restored.
