Gov. Abbott Issued Federal Emergency Declaration for Texas Severe Winter Weather
Almost 3 million households were reportedly without power as of Wednesday morning, and to make things worse a lot of households went without water as well.
The White House has declared a federal emergency for Texas as the entire state deals with severe winter weather.
This comes after Governor Greg Abbott requested the Federal Emergency Declaration be issued.
President Joe Biden's declaration allows for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to coordinate all disaster relief efforts and provide assistance to those impacted by the winter weather.
Gov. Abbott previously issued a disaster declaration for all 254 counties in the state as a winter storm tore through the state.
