The huge winter storm that’s freezing Texas has left the state with a major water crisis. About 13-million Texans reportedly are advised to boil their drinking water, after record-low temperatures damaged pipes across the state this week. The storm also caused widespread power outages, and hundreds of thousands are still without power.

President Biden has approved an emergency declaration that will move supplies and equipment to Texas and other states hit by the storm.

Meanwhile, Texas Senator Ted Cruz is admitting it was a mistake to travel to Mexico while his state suffers. He is back in Texas after fierce backlash for going to Cancun with his family.
