Trump In Texas, Louisiana

On Saturday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited both Texas and Louisiana. They made multiple stops in Houston, Lake Charles and other locations ravaged by Hurricane Harvey. The President and First Lady met with First Responders and volunteer rescue teams, like the Cajun Navy, and with victims of the devastating storm. They toured relief centers and even lent a hand in helping pass out food and supplies to refugees still forced out of their homes by floods.

Trump Texas Visit, Harvey Update

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump went to Texas yesterday to visit with those managing the response to Hurricane Harvey. Now a tropical storm, Harvey has set records for most rainfall in Texas with about 52 inches in some locations. The President and his wife arrived first in Corpus Christi, about 30 miles south from where Harvey came ashore last Friday. They then went to Austin, the state capitol. At both stops, POTUS and FLOTUS were briefed by federal, state and local officials as to how the relief effort is going and what more is needed. Before leaving for Austin, the President gave a quick speech at a fire station in Corpus Christi, waving a state flag of Texas and providing words of encouragement.

Hurricane Harvey Slams Texas

Hurricane Harvey slammed into Texas as a Category 4 storm last night. It made landfall near Rockport around 10pm Central Time, packing sustained winds of 130 MPH with gusts over 160 MPH. Earlier in the day, the mayor of Rockport had warned those residents whom did not comply with the mandatory evacuation order to write their name and Social Security number on their arms for later identification. Now THAT is COLD! President Donald Trump has already declared Texas a federal disaster zone, expediting aid to the state. Currently, Hurricane Harvey is around Victoria, Texas and has been downgraded to a Category 1 storm. Rain and flooding remain the primary issues. With the ground so soaked, even winds of 40 MPH or less may be enough to uproot trees, causing serious property damage.

Preparing For Hurricane Harvey

Texas is bracing itself from Hurricane Harvey. This may be the first major storm in 2017 to hit the United States this season. America has not had a Category 3 or worse storm in a dozen years since Wilma. The latest advisory information is that Hurricane Harvey is at a Cat 2 level with sustained wind speeds of 105MPH and gusts of 130MPH. It is expected to intensify over the next 12 to 24 hours into a Cat 3 storm before slamming into coast, probably between the mouth of the Rio Grande to Port Mansfield, Texas. Aside from the wind and storm surge, major flooding may occur due to a prolonged period of heavy rain. Some areas of Eastern Texas could get 35 inches or more of rain over the next 3 days.
