A deadly winter storm has been battering Texas leaving many without heating and power according to a Dallas Observer article from February 15th. In it they say:
“Amid a winter storm that has plunged temperatures and blanketed much of North Texas in snow, Dallas and the surrounding cities have come to a standstill.
State and local officials are urging Texans to conserve energy as more than a million people experience rolling power outages statewide.”
And now, even flights have been grounded as visibility plummets due to the continued heavy snowfall and gusty winds according to a Dallas Morning News article from January 15th. In it they say:
“Airlines flying in and out of Texas have already canceled hundreds of flights for Wednesday in anticipation of more snow and cold weather, adding to days of misery for flights out of some of the nation’s busiest travel hubs.
About 800 flights were canceled Tuesday at DFW Airport, the hometown hub for American Airlines, according to Flightaware.com. At Dallas Love Field, Southwest Airlines preemptively canceled about 20 flights, but about a dozen flights departed early Tuesday in dry but frigid conditions.”
Still no news on when power will fully be restored.
