WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says federal cash for storm-ravaged areas in Texas and elsewhere will arrive quickly.

He says to people suffering from Hurricane Harvey and the resulting flooding that "You're going to have what you need and it's going to go fast."

Trump adds that he's spoken with members of Congress and "everybody feels for" people in the storm's path.

The storm has dumped historic amounts of rain on areas in and around Houston, which continues to flood. Deaths have been blamed on Hurricane Harvey, the first major natural disaster of Trump's presidency.
