Biden approves disaster declaration for Texas amid deep freeze
Al Jazeera, 21 Feb 2021
US President Joe Biden has approved a major disaster declaration for Texas, five days after it and other southern US states were hit by rare snowstorms.
Temperatures are finally forecast to rise, but hundreds of thousands of people are still without power and millions now have no clean drinking water after treatment plants shut down.
The president said he hopes to visit the Lone Star state next week.
