He is also set to make a stop in Texas before returning to Washington DC.

Although the storm was not as bad as once feared, authorities were still warning it could leave people with out running water or power for weeks in the stifling late summer heat.

White House spokesman Judd Deere saidTrump will travel next week to Kenosha on Tuesday to meet with law enforcement officials and view damage from unrest triggered by Blake's shooting last weekend. He is expected to survey storm damage and receive briefings on emergency operations and ongoing relief efforts.

Trump had earlier told reporters that he'd considered delaying his speech accepting his party's nomination for a second term until Monday because the storm was coming.

"I'm concerned that as we continue to go out and do primary and secondary search and rescue, we're going to find more fatalities", Edwards said.

The president said that Louisiana had "been through a lot" between the massive hurricane and its Covid-19 outbreak. "But now, it turned out, we got a little bit lucky".

Trump has approved Edwards' formal request for a disaster declaration for 23 parishes in the state, which frees up Federal Emergency Management Assistance.

Washington, Aug 29 (IANS) The death toll due to the Category 4 hurricane Laura, that lashed the U.S. states of Louisiana and Texas, has increased to 14, authorities said.

Trump has sometimes struggled with his role as consoler in chief, failing to project empathy when visiting places hard hit by tragedy and disaster. During a trip to the Carolinas in 2018, Trump marveled at a yacht floodwaters had washed onto a family's property, telling them, "At least you got a nice boat out of the deal".

Other times, Trump has been a source of comfort.

In a statement on Hurricane Laura on Saturday, Biden said "we will come back and we will be there to help you build back better". After a powerful tornado ripped through Alabama previous year, killing almost two dozen people, Trump spent time with families who'd lost loved ones, listening to their stories and hugging them.

Laura made landfall on Thursday morning packing winds of 150 miles per hour, some of the strongest to hit the region in more than a century, and creating a storm surge as high as 15 feet.

The Louisiana Department of Health estimated that more than 220,000 people were without water.

President Donald Trump speaks with first responders as he tours a warehouse being used as a distribution point for relief aid after Hurricane Laura hit the area, August 29, in Lake Charles, La.

A total six people have died from carbon monoxide poisoning since Hurricane Laura has passed.

Meanwhile, the hurricane's remnants drifted north and threatened to bring flooding and tornadoes to Tennessee.
