President Trump will visit Texas next week to survey the damage from Hurricane Harvey, a category 3 storm that is expected to bring catastrophic flooding to the state.
The storm is expected to make landfall on the Gulf Coast on Friday afternoon with winds as high as 100 miles an hour and a storm surge that experts have said could reach 10 feet.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who spoke with Trump yesterday, has urged him to issue a major disaster declaration ahead of the storm.
Harvey could affect as many as 4.6 million people in Texas and Louisiana.
