Greg Abbott has Questions After the Texas Power Grid Failure

Since the current power grid breakdown left many people in the state without energy once more, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is once again facing difficult questions.

Last week, a dangerous ice storm slammed the southern United States, leaving about 400,000 houses out of 13 million without electricity in Texas.

Lows of 27 degrees were recorded in the region of Austin and San Antonio, and temperatures as low as 29 degrees were recorded in south central Texas.

Since Sunday morning, 66,788 residents in Texas have been without electricity, per PowerOutage.us, a site that records electric customers without electricity.

Minor power failures affected California and Arkansas, leaving 24,114 and 14,561 residents without energy.

During the hurricane, Abbott declared a crisis in Texas while admitting the power shortages.

Denton, Hays, Henderson, Milam, Smith, Travis, and Willamson counties are included in Abbott’s statement.

The governor declared: “The State of Texas has offered all help needed during the week’s extreme storms, and we plan to make sure that localities all around our state have the tools and assistance they require to recover from the winter weather disaster.”
