The city of Houston is currently under a boil water notice. The notice was issued Feb. 17 as freezing temperatures caused low water pressure throughout the region. Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo encouraged Houston residents in a press conference to brace for ongoing winter weather.
“This is no longer just an emergency. It’s clear that it is a disaster,” Hidalgo said. “Since we last stood here 24 hours ago, we’ve not seen sustainable improvements just yet in the power situation."
Correction: This article incorrectly said thousands of Spring and Klein residents are without power. The sentence has been changed to "hundreds."
