Winter storm causes dangerous power outages in Texas

Deteriorating Weather In Texas Delays Delays In Delaying New Shipments Of COVID-19 Vaccine

A powerful winter storm swept across the United States, bringing with it heavy snowfall, ice and frost so severe that temperature records were set in some places..

From Texas to Maine, more than 140 million Americans are trapped in a historic storm that led to numerous power outages.

In total, more than 4 million US residents were left without electricity, including 2 million in Texas.

Law enforcement officials reported two men found dead in the Houston area. Causes of death are being identified, but authorities suspect they died of hypothermia.

Deteriorating weather conditions in Texas have delayed the delivery of new batches of COVID-19 vaccine. Drugs are now expected to arrive no earlier than mid-week.

Power outages in the Houston area affected the room containing 8,000 doses of Moderna vaccine, requiring special storage conditions. In this situation, the health authorities tried to urgently find those wishing to be vaccinated, while the authorities urged people to stay at home.

Ice on roads and record snowfalls in some states have led to massive road accidents, putting even more people at risk. In total, 12 people have died as a result of a winter storm in the United States in recent days..
