President Obama plans trip to Baton Rouge following flood

President Barack Obama plans to travel to Louisiana Aug. 23 following flooding that ravaged the area.

“The President is mindful of the impact that his travel has on first responders and wants to ensure that his presence does not interfere with ongoing recovery efforts,” the White House said. “He is also eager to get a first-hand look at the impact of the devastating floods, hear from more officials about the response, including how the federal government can assist and tell the people of Louisiana that the American people will be with them as they rebuild their community and come back stronger than ever.”

More details about Obama’s trip to Baton Rouge will be announced in the coming days.
