First lady Melania Trump will join President Trump this week during his visit to Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

The director of communications for the first lady tweeted Monday that Melania Trump would travel to Texas with the president. 

{mosads}The president is expected to visit Texas on Tuesday amid ongoing recovery efforts.

The storm, which made landfall late Friday as a Category 4 hurricane, has since been downgraded to a tropical storm but continues to bring rain and flooding to the region.

At least five people have died, and Houston and other parts of Texas have been devastated by the storm.

President Trump on Sunday praised the agencies responding to the disaster and said the focus needs to be on “life and safety.”

On Monday, the acting Homeland Security secretary warned that Texans “are not out of the woods yet.”

“Harvey is still a dangerous and historic storm,” acting Secretary Elaine Duke said.
