CA, 18 Feb 2021
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is expected to provide an update on Wednesday following a major winter storm that has left millions of people without power as they also experience unusually cold weather.
The governor is facing intense scrutiny over his handling of the mass outages as he tries to address the crisis, including deploying the state's National Guard in an effort to help relocate vulnerable people, including elderly individuals, to warm shelters.
He's also focused blame on the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, calling for state lawmakers to launch an investigation into the council, which operates the electric grid.
