The White House is appointing a Health and Human Services Department official to lead federal efforts to help the city of Flint, Michigan, deal with its water crisis.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says he anticipates that President Barack Obama will meet with the city's mayor on Tuesday.

Mayor Karen Weaver had already visited with the president's senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, earlier in the day.
