MEXICO BEACH, Fla. (AP) - President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have arrived in Florida to survey damage in the state as well in Georgia from Hurricane Michael.
  
Trump landed Monday at Eglin Air Force Base near Valparaiso. The White House has not identified the communities Trump will visit.
  
The president tweeted before leaving the White House that he will meet with law enforcement and government officials aiding the massive recovery effort. He said "maximum effort is taking place, everyone is working very hard."
  
The Florida Panhandle took a direct hit from Michael. More than 190,000 homes and businesses in Florida remain without electricity, along with about 120,000 homes and businesses in Georgia.
  
The death toll currently stands at 17.
