President Donald Trump plans to visit storm-stricken Florida on Thursday, the White House said, his third such trip to a weather devastated state after a spate of violent U.S. weather. The president, who will be joined by First Lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, then heads 40 miles south to Naples to visit residents affected by the storm.

It is the third trip that Trump has made in response to a hurricane striking the southern United States.

The future path of Hurricane Jose remains uncertain
Monday , Jose was located about 305 miles north northeast of Grand Turk Island with maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour. Jose could even drop to tropical storm strength by Friday, though some slight restrengthening can't be ruled out early next week.

Trump has also taken pains to appear personally involved in planning and relief efforts, appearing in photos from the Oval Office with large maps and briefing materials spread across the wooden Resolute Desk. Careful consideration was given to how Trump can visit the disaster zone and meet with first responders without getting in the way of recovery efforts.

Afterward, the White House was mainly pleased with the trip, though some aides grumbled that he'd missed an opportunity to show more compassion as hundreds of thousands of Americans faced uncertain futures. Utility officials warned it could take 10 days or more for power to be fully restored.

Millions are still without power across Florida, and several areas have been devastated by Irma, especially the Florida Keys.
