As we speak, the great state of Texas is experiencing one of the worst natural disasters in its history. President Donald Trump recognizes this and has risen to meet the challenge.According to recent reports, President Trump plans on visiting Texas this Tuesday. President Trump plans on surveying the damage done by Hurricane Harvey, and will also examine how FEMA and local authorities have responded to the crisis.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the media that the president and his team are “coordinating logistics with state and local officials.” Sanders also reminded everyone that: “We continue to keep all of those affected in our thoughts and prayers.”So far, Hurricane Harvey has claimed six lives, most of which were lost due to “historic” flooding following days of heavy rainfall.
The City of Houston, which is the largest in Texas, has seen its freeways turned into oceans of brackish water. Other parts of coastal Texas have also been hit hard by the storm, which made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane.
Although Hurricane Harvey has decreased in power, widespread power outages and flooding still necessitate the designation of coastal Texas as a disaster area.
According to Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R), President Trump promised to provide the “Lone Star State” with any and all federal assistance.
