I say send Mighty Mouse to save the day
Ted Cruz passed out water, BBQ in Texas this weekend. AOC raised $5 million for Texans.
Along with the warm weather melting the snow, Texans mostly have their power back — all but about 18,000 Sunday night, down from more than 4 million last week — and water service is coming back online, often with orders to boil it before drinking. At least 32 people Texans died from the storm, including an 11-year-old boy in Conroe, Christian Pavon, who was found dead of suspected hypothermia after two nights in an uninsulated trailer with his family.
‘Where is Greg Abbott?’ Anger grows at Texas governor in deadly storm’s wake
Feb. 21, 2021 at 6:33 p.m. EST
It was clear by Tuesday afternoon that Texas was in a full-blown crisis — and Gov. Greg Abbott (R) had largely been out of sight.
More than 4 million households did not have power amid dangerously low temperatures, and an increasing number did not have heat or running water. Some families were burning furniture to stay warm, grocery stores were emptying, and people were dying. In the freezing darkness, many desperate Texans felt they were left to fend for themselves.
Abbott emerged that evening for a series of television interviews. In short, curt sentences, he told Texans in the Lubbock and Houston areas that he had issued an emergency order and called for an immediate legislative investigation of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which operates the electrical grid. He angrily accused the council of not having a backup power supply and not sharing information with Texans, “even with the governor of Texas.”
Then he went on Fox News.
11-year-old found dead after freezing cold night in a Conroe mobile home with no power
Christian Pavon was excited to play in the snow on Monday. But after a night of bitter cold temperatures, the boy's family found his lifeless body in his bed.
Family of 11-year-old boy who died in unheated Texas mobile home sues power companies for over $100 million
Feb. 22, 2021 at 6:28 a.m. EST
For more than 24 hours last week, Maria Elisa Pineda’s pastel green mobile home outside Houston had no power and heat as temperatures plunged to 9 degrees. On Tuesday, Pineda found her 11-year-old son, Cristian Pavon, dead under a pile of blankets on his own bed — a death authorities suspect was a result of hypothermia.
Now, Pineda is suing two major Texas energy providers, alleging Cristian would not have died had both companies alerted residents that the outages would last several days during the dangerous cold snap.
The lawsuit filed over the weekend, first reported by the Houston Chronicle, also accuses Entergy Texas and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, known as ERCOT, of failing to protect the state’s independent power grid from a historic deep freeze that left millions without electricity, heat and water for days.
bro you are being a bit rude spamming the site with 900 stories about this.
a gentleman does does not spam his niggas
A bit? You're being far too kind.
"Ted Cruz passed out water, BBQ in Texas this weekend. AOC raised $5 million for Texans."
to be fair its easier to raise money than to do something. its not her money its other people that deserve the credit. the credit is for the people giving the money, not AOC who just tells them to give it.
Dude, you have become tiresome. Like most libtards you don't have a single original thought in your pointed little head. Do you really think any of us read the long streams of groupthink you post in your links?
