Texas Winter Storm

Texas Winter Storm was the result of a major winter and ice storm that had widespread impacts across the United States, Northern Mexico, and parts of Canada from February 13–17. All 254 Texas counties were placed under a winter weather warning of ice and snow which caused the Texas electric grid to not support the load. 4 million people were without power through the peak of this deadly crisis and many more people faced rolling blackouts. As power came back to the people natural gas and water supplies started going down and many cities were placed on boiling orders of water before any sort of use.

The record low temperatures caused damage to many homes and businesses across the state many people had pipes crack and burst leaving many with no electricity, water and a home.

At least 58 people have died in a storm-battered region that stretches to Ohio, and many more still could be impacted.

Today still people are facing shortage of food and water. Humanity First USA is working in partnership with MKA USA and helping the people on the ground!
