Millions still without safe drinking water in Texas

Millions of Texans remained without safe drinking water Sunday as state officials sought to ramp up bottled water distribution and calm residents who’ve seen spiking electricity bills in the aftermath of a severe winter storm that left the state battered.

Boil water notices were lifted for roughly 5 million of the 14.9 million people who were told their water wasn’t safe to drink two days ago, said Toby Baker, executive director of the state Commission on Environmental Quality, in a news conference Sunday.

The notices were issued after days of record-low temperatures damaged the state’s water infrastructure.

Nearly 3.5 million bottles of water had been distributed by helicopter, airplane and truck across the state, Gov. Greg Abbott said Sunday.

3. There's no support.

Support in Texas for secession is a myth. It's rarely higher than 20% statewide, and you can get 20% of people to agree to almost anything. It's just a few loud morons who know where the cameras are pointed.
