Millions of people in Texas are suffering as a new winter storm hits the state amid a deadly power and water crisis. As Texas experiences record-low temperatures, 600,000 homes remain without power after the collapse of the state’s own underregulated electrical grid. Some Texans are sleeping in their cars for heat. More than 12 million Texans face water disruptions, and residents in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and other areas have been ordered to boil tap water to ensure its safety, but many don’t have electricity. Some parts of the state have no running water at all. Texas is also running out of food as the storms have disrupted key supply chains. The powerful winter storms have left at least 38 dead across Texas and other states.
