The winter storm swept through Texas during the weekend and is expected to peak on the afternoon of February 14 local time.
The Texas government is currently preparing for various dangerous conditions caused by historical severe weather.
Heavy snow had already occurred in most parts of Texas on the evening of the 13th, causing road surfaces to freeze.
In response, government officials warned that people should avoid traveling unless necessary.
Texas is facing a very extreme winter storm, the scale of the storm and its adverse effects on local traffic are “unprecedented” in Texas history, Gov. Greg Abbott said.
Currently, Texas’s Transportation Department is working around the clock to address any challenges that arise across the state.
Previously, a vicious traffic accident had occurred in Fort Worth, Texas, which had caused many deaths.
Early on the 11th local time, on the section of Interstate 35 in Fort Worth, due to the ice on the road surface at that time, there was a serious traffic accident of up to 133 vehicles rear-end, resulting in at least 6 deaths and 65 injuries.
