(CNN) - President Barack Obama will make a statement on Hurricane Irene at 5 p.m. ET Sunday, the White House announced.
The president is expected to thank emergency responders for their work during the storm and provide an update on conditions, a senior administration official said.
He'll urge people "to continue to be vigilant," the official said.
The official added that "some in the Northeast still have a dangerous tropical storm to deal with. Other hazards like inland flooding and downed power lines are out there. We're not out of the woods just yet. And, we still have a big clean-up job ahead."
