President Donald Trump wrote online Wednesday morning that there would be “no rest for the weary” on his hurricane response team, which he said has shifted from the Gulf Coast in Texas to Florida, where Hurricane Irma could make landfall.
“Watching Hurricane closely. My team, which has done, and is doing, such a good job in Texas, is already in Florida. No rest for the weary!” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning.
The president has been especially involved in hurricane response over the last two weeks, making two trips to the Gulf Coast to survey damage from Hurricane Harvey, which made landfall near Corpus Christi, Texas, as a category 4 storm and then moved on to Houston, where it set off historic levels of flooding and left dozens dead.
Hurricane Irma’s forecasted direction remains uncertain, with different models predicting different tracks for the storm, but its 185 mile per hour winds make it one of the most powerful storms in the history of the Atlantic Ocean.
