On Thursday’s Houston Matters: We’re taking the hour to answer your questions about the freeze, the power outages, the water pressure problems, the price gouging concerns, you name it.

We’ll be joined throughout the hour by the chief executive of Fort Bend County, Judge K.P. George. He also leads the county’s emergency management office.

We’ll hear from Eric Berger, meteorologist and editor of Space City Weather, on how much long this freeze will linger in Texas and the Greater Houston Area.

Then, you’ll hear from Harris County Attorney Christian Menefee who’s asking residents to report incidents of price gouging amid limited supply in the coming days.

We’ll discuss that, and anything else on your mind about this week. E-mail us at talk@houstonmatters.org or call 713-440-8870 to take part in the conversation.
