President Donald Trump said Saturday morning he took the advice of a longtime Republican lawmaker by being prepared and focused on the federal government's response to Hurricane Harvey.

Trump tweeted this in response to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who cautioned the president Friday to stay on top of what's happening on the Gulf Coast because of the storm:

A short time later, Trump posted another tweet that said he is keeping abreast of the hurricane, which made landfall near Corpus Christi, Texas overnight. 

The Category 4 hurricane slammed into the Texas coast with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph.

It was later downgraded to a Category 1 storm after weakening over land.

The storm is expected to dump more than three feet of rain on the Gulf Coast region over the next few days.
