  • Trump says US is 'prepared' to deal with Irma

The White House said Trump's briefing included an update on Irma's status, forecasted path, evacuations and preparations for response and recovery.

President Donald Trump spoke to state governors in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee on Sunday, as Hurricane Erma moved from the Florida Keys to the Gulf Coast and states to the north, the White House said on Sunday.

"This continues to be a very risky storm", Pence said, calling Irma a hurricane of "epic proportions".

Then there are those who hope Irma misses Mar-a-Lago completely, but just because they want Tropical Storm Jose - a more Hispanic-sounding name than "Irma" - to take aim at the estate. "We've all been working together.

From Texas to Louisiana, from Florida to Puerto Rico, and always the U.S. Virgin Islands, and everywhere in between that has been affected by these awful storms: we will endure and come back stronger than ever before", the president said.

'This is a storm of enormous destructive power, and I ask everyone in the storm's path to heed ALL instructions from government officials, ' he wrote.

Trump also thanked government officials for their hard work and bravery. The National Hurricane Center describes storm surge as, "often the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane".

"I think now with what's happened with the hurricane, I'm going to ask for it to speed up", he said.

The President earlier posted a link to state information on the locations of shelters, road closures and evacuation routes.

"Wherever Hurricane Irma goes, we'll be there first", Pence said.

Trump said the USA was grieving for those who were killed by Irma even before she reached the US mainland.

Long said it was "hard to say" how long the $15 billion approved by Congress for disaster relief will last. He said he was saying prayers for us. "He really wants to make sure that we're taking care of the people".

The president and Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly have also spoken frequently with Florida senators Bill Nelson, a Democrat, and Marco Rubio, a Republican, said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. Here comes Irma. God bless everyone!'
