Winter storm cripples life in Texas, millions without power supply

Houstonians woke up to heaps of snow outside their homes Monday morning, with brutally cold wind chill dipping temperatures into the teens and no electricity in most areas.

The entire state of Texas is under a winter storm warning. National Weather Service forecasters have extended the winter storm warning for the Houston area to 6 am Thursday, as cold weather and the threat of more rain — freezing or otherwise — remain.

President Joe Biden approved Texas’ emergency disaster proclamation Sunday. The declaration orders federal assistance to supplement state and local storm response efforts, according to a statement from the White House.
