US President Biden declares state of ‘major disaster’ in Texas

US President Joe Biden has declared a state of ‘major disaster’ in Texas – following crippling winter weather. At least two dozen people died in the unusual cold, which disrupted electricity and water supplies.

Texas is not out of the woods yet. Thousands of families have been arriving in their cars to the mass distribution center in the city of Houston. The shortage of water is now the biggest challenge . Now the city is trying to help.

Millions of bottles of water are being distributed in a coordinated effort with dozens of volunteers. Each car gets no more than three cases, regardless of how many family members.

But they have to be able to pick it up in downtown Houston.
