FORT MYERS, Fla. President Donald Trump will be in Southwest Florida on Thursday, a source close to the White House said.

Trump will get a first-hand look at the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. First Lady Melania Trump tweeted earlier that she and the president would fly Thursday to Florida to survey hurricane damage, but she didn’t name a specific location.

The president on Sunday approved a major disaster declaration to help funding get to storm victims.

Trump called the devastation left by Irma “far greater, at least in certain locations, than anyone thought.”
