Today President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have touched down in Texas surveying the untold damage done by Hurricane Harvey, which is still ravaging the Gulf Coast. Trump’s arrival, as covered by NTK Network:

Accompanying the president is Connecticut native Linda McMahon, who’s currently the head of the Small Business Administration (SBA) under President Trump.

The president thanked McMahon during a briefing on the hurricane relief efforts, for her success and hard work leading the SBA. The president promised “100 percent support” for the flood victims dealing with such a catastrophe.

The SBA under McMahon is sure to take an important role in repairing the economic damage brought by Hurricane Harvey to the Texas coast.

Along with McMahon, Connecticut Guardsmen’s are currently in Texas:

The state of Connecticut is sending eight National Guard airmen and a cargo plane to Texas to provide help after Harvey. Gov. Dannel Malloy said the state has deployed a C-130H cargo plane and eight Airmen from the 103rd Airlift Wing of the Connecticut National Guard to help with response and recovery efforts in Texas.
