President Trump's homeland security adviser Tom Bossert said Friday he had spoken to Pentagon and State Department officials and insisted they were prepared to tackle Irma response efforts quickly.

Beneficiaries from those areas can get emergency prescription refills at any in-network retail pharmacy until September 15, officials said. Irma's center is expected to reach South Florida around 8:00 a.m. Sunday morning.
