Joe Biden will visit Texas as thousands struggle to return to normal in the wake of the winter storm power blackouts.

The president and first lady will fly to Houston on Friday to see the situation on the ground and discuss recovery efforts with state officials, the White House has confirmed.

“On Friday the president and the first lady will travel to Houston,” said White House press secretary Jen Psaki at her daily briefing.

“The president will meet with local leaders to discuss the winter storm relief efforts progress towards recovery and the incredible resilience shown by the people of Houston and Texas.”
