In February 2021, a winter storm referred to as Winter Storm Uri hit Texas, which affected millions of Texans and caused widespread damages. The record-low temperatures and a steady blizzard of snow and freezing rain that stretched to Ohio led to obstructing roads and extended power blackouts.
The winter storm may have passed, but its effects will continue to linger for a long time. People have lost loved ones. Many were forced to leave their homes and evacuate, while others were left in dire situations and grasped for the most basic needs like food and water.
