HOUSTON (AP) – President Donald Trump is encouraging the public to prepare for Hurricane Harvey before it makes landfall in Texas.
Trump says on Twitter that he’s encouraging “everyone in the path of #HurricaneHarvey to heed the advice & orders of their local and state officials.” His tweet included a link with more information on the storm.
Harvey was upgraded to a dangerous Category 3 hurricane. The storm is expected to make landfall Friday night or Saturday morning on the middle Texas coast.
Trump was briefed on the storm earlier in the day and was expected to monitor Harvey during the weekend at Camp David.
