President Donald Trump offered federal resources to Texas ahead of Hurricane Harvey's arrival.

In a call to Governor Greg Abbott, Trump said federal support would be available to help the state assist in preparation, rescue and recovery efforts.

Abbott thanked Trump for his pledge of support, and said state officials are working around the clock along with local and federal partners ahead of the storm.

Hurricane Harvey is expected to make landfall in the middle Texas coast near Rockport late Friday night.
