The widespread power outages in Texas have caused serious damage to the states heating, water, food, and medicine.

Power had been down for almost 4 million Texans and nearly 12 million are facing distributions with boil water, broken pipes, and failing systems.

The winter and severe cold weather is still affecting the power generation even though they’ve had “progress” with restoring it through Wednesday night said The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, (ERCOT).

ERCOT says that those without power still are in areas where the ice and cold have damaged the distribution system.

Temperatures are said to rise Friday but the conditions will still be below freezing.

TikTok users in Texas are posting about the weather conditions as well and sharing their families struggles.
