Trumps to visit Corpus Christi, Austin
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is heading to two Texas cities for updates on the devastating flooding that has paralyzed the southeastern part of the state in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
The White House announced late Monday that the president and first lady Melania Trump will depart early Tuesday morning for Corpus Christi, where they'll receive a briefing on relief efforts by local leaders and relief organizations.
The couple will then head to Austin for a tour of the Texas Department of Public Safety's Emergency Operations Center.
The trip will conclude with a briefing there from state leaders.
Harvey poured rain on the Houston area Monday for a fourth consecutive day after a chaotic weekend of rising water and rescues.
