(AL.com) — President Trump will travel to Florida Thursday to survey damage from Hurricane Irma.

In a Wednesday morning tweet, the president said he will be meeting with representatives from the U.S. Coast Guard, first responders and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The White House has not announced where in Florida the president will go.

According to The Hill, the Federal Aviation Administration posted a travel advisory Tuesday that covers Fort Myers, a step that typically proceeds a presidential visit.

First Lady Melania Trump is expected to accompany the president.

The President and the First Lady made two trips to Texas last month in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Earlier in the week, the president sent a message to Florida hurricane victims.

"We are here for you. Now is the time to unit as one America," the president said.
