The National Weather Service is forecasting flooding in Kentucky and Tennessee as Tropical Depression Harvey travels inland.
Forecasters say the storm is expected to drop 2 to 6 in (5 to 15.2 cm) of rain in Kentucky, with the highest totals expected in western Kentucky near the Tennessee border.
White House Press Secritary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Donald Trump plans to donate $1m of his own money to relief efforts in Texas and Louisiana.
Surprisingly, given the administration’s antipathy for the news media, Huckabee Sanders asks reporters for their help, on behalf of Trump, in choosing a charity to give that money to, “since you are very good at research and have been doing a lot of reporting into the organizations that are best and most effective in providing aid and he’d love some suggestions.”
