Many Texans are still without heat and electricity while freezing temperatures are expected to last into the weekend.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned residents on Thursday to brace for the continuation of freezing temperatures.
“We are not yet out of this,” says Abbott. “But we’re closer to this challenge being behind us. We will not stop until normalcy is restored to your lives.”
According to USA Today, at least 56 people have died. Although the majority of the deaths were due to traffic and poor driving conditions. Some people have died from carbon monoxide poisonings while attempting to find ways to stay warm.
