The state of Texas is in crisis right now as it prepares for the massive impact of Hurricane Harvey. Now, First Lady Melania Trump is calling for prayers for the Lone Star state.
“For those living near the path of #HurricaneHarvey stay safe! Thoughts & prayers of an entire country are with you,” the first lady tweeted Friday, according to Western Journalism.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, sent out a similar message.
“As Texas prepares for the potential impact in the Gulf Coast region from Tropical Storm Harvey, I urge all Texans in the path of the storm to heed warnings from local officials, know your evacuation route, and avoid all high water areas,” Cruz wrote on his Facebook page Thursday. “This is a serious storm, with strong winds and what forecasters have predicted will potentially be a historic amount of rainfall that will significantly raise the risk of serious and life-threatening flooding.”
“I have great confidence in our state’s first responders, who stand ready to assist those affected. And I ask that you join Heidi and me in keeping all of those in the path of this storm in your thoughts and prayers,” Cruz added.
