WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will probably travel to the area hit by Hurricane Michael on Sunday or Monday, after the storm passes, he told reporters on Wednesday.

The hurricane was closing in on the northwest coast of Florida on Wednesday, carrying top winds of 150 miles per hour (241 km per hour), making it a very dangerous Category 4 storm on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, the National Hurricane Center said.
