Millions in Texas lose power as winter storm drops temps to -22C
Al Jazeera, 16 Feb 2021
An enormous winter storm has been pummelling at least 20 states in the US, bringing rare snowfalls to its southern regions.
In Texas, record low temperatures, way below freezing, brought the electricity grid to its knees and caused oil refineries to shut.
More than two million customers there lost power, many caught up in intentional outages designed to ease the strain on the system.
