Donald Trump will tour the flood damage in ravaged Louisiana Friday.
A campaign official familiar with the plans says the GOP nominee and his runningmate Mike Pence will travel to the state on Friday.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the plans before they were officially announced.
At least 13 people have died as a result of the flooding, and at one point 11,000 were in shelters.
Trump said at a rally Thursday that his prayers are with the people impacted.
Trump is addressing the devastation in Louisiana while Obama is playing golf in Martha's Vineyard and Hillary is taking a break from campaigning destroy her enemies and to fund raise for her favorite charity with sharp craven appeals for corporate and foreign donors (oh BTW, Hilary's favorite charity is Hillary Clinton).

Finally, we are going to bring this country together. We are going to do it by emphasizing what we all have in common as Americans. We are going to reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton, which sees communities of color only as votes and not as human beings worthy of a better future.
If African-American voters give Donald Trump a chance by giving me their vote, the result for them will be amazing. Look at how badly things are going under decades of Democratic leadership – look at the schools, look at the 58% of young African-Americans not working. It is time for change.
What do you have to lose by trying something new? – I will fix it. This means so much to me, and I will work as hard as I can to bring new opportunity to places in our country which have not known opportunity in a very long time.
Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party have taken African-American votes totally for granted. Because the votes have been automatically there, there has been no reason for Democrats to produce.
It is time to break with the failures of the past, and to fight for every last American child in this country to have the better future they deserve.
In my Administration, every American will be treated equally, protected equally, and honored equally. We will reject bigotry and hatred and oppression in all of its forms, and seek a new future built on our common culture and values as one American people.
This is the change I am promising all of you: an honest government, a fair economy, and a just society for each and every American.
But we can never fix our problems by relying on the same politicians who created these problems in the first place.
72% of voters say our country is on the wrong track. I am the change candidate, Hillary Clinton is the failed status quo.
Trump is on a roll with these speeches (I love them): Law and Order Speech in West Bend, Wisconsin (with Trump also doing a solid effort on black outreach), Foreign Policy Speech in Youngstown, Ohio and an Economics Speech in Detroit, Michigan.
