Deadly Ice Storm Leaves 300,000 Texans Without Power in Frigid Cold, At Least 7 Dead Across US

More than 300,000 Texans are without power in the frigid cold as a deadly ice storm continues to cripple much of the South. The storm has been blamed for at least 7 deaths in Texas so far, and the death toll is expected to rise.

Power outages have skyrocketed and relentless ice has wreaked havoc in Texas and the mid-South for the past three days. Hundreds of accidents have occurred across the US as 35 million Americans are under advisory.

Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for the next several days, making it difficult for those without power to keep warm. Officials are warning people to stay indoors and avoid any unnecessary travel.

The storm has also caused widespread damage, with downed trees and power lines causing hazardous conditions. Many roads have been closed due to icy conditions, and some areas have declared a state of emergency.

The full extent of the damage is still being assessed, but it is clear that the storm has had a devastating impact. The storm is expected to move eastward over the next few days, bringing more cold weather and hazardous conditions.
