Pres Trump, VP Pence & Several Cabinet Members Are Briefed On Hurricane Irma

Trump says US is 'prepared' to deal with Irma Pres Trump, VP Pence & Several Cabinet Members Are Briefed On Hurricane Irma
Andrew Cummings | 11 September, 2017, 00:47

Regardless of the route that the eye of the storm takes, Irma "will bring life-threatening wind impacts to much of Florida", according to the NHC.

"Property is replaceable but lives are not and safety has to come first, don't worry about it, just get out of its way", he said.

Hurricane Irma made its second landfall on Marco Island on the southwest Florida coast this afternoon with 115 miles per hour winds after battering the Florida Keys earlier today.

Trump also said of Irma that 'we've never seen anything like this'.

As Hurricane Irma tore through the Caribbean over the past two days, the destruction it left in its wake on several small - and relatively poor - islands was almost total.

"My administration is monitoring the situation around the clock and we're in constant communication with all of the governors, with state and local officials", said Trump. He recently tracked Hurricane Harvey's rampage through Texas, Louisiana and other places from there.

The Department of Homeland Security and FEMA will continue to brief Trump at least daily, she said, adding, "but he is at the touch of a dial away from us".

The briefing the President received at Camp David caused Trump "great concern" because, as the hurricane moves up the west coast of the state, the storm surge could result in deaths, Pence told CNN. "Heed the advice of @FLGovScott!" wrote Trump. He said at Saturday's meeting that he would press for Congress to complete its work on a bill even sooner this year.

"I think now, with what's happened with the hurricane, I'm gonna ask for a speed up", he said. "Safety must come first to worry about", the president said addressing the U.S. citizens in a video from the meeting, released on his Twitter page. Trump said he would also be discussing the latest on North Korea and tax reform.

A White House official said that Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were keeping people affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in their prayers, and encouraged everyone to listen to local authorities, reported the Washington Examiner. Congress acted quickly to pass the $15.3 billion deal and send it to Trump, who signed it Friday after he arrived at the Maryland retreat.
