You made it through the week.
Power is back. Water is back, even though the city is experiencing problems with low pressure and a boil notice remains through the weekend.
And tonight is the last really cold night, with only a light freeze expected in Houston. Then, temperatures will be back up in the 60s.
You want to get out, get some food – but grocery stores have limited supplies.
On top of that, we're still in a pandemic.
Today, we want to help you start navigating the aftermath of the winter freeze.
Need food? Water? Supplies? Or want to help a neighbor in need?
Today, we want to help you find necessities as you prepare for the weekend and begin to recover from the historic winter storms in Texas.
Representatives from HEB, the Greater Houston Restaurant Association and Mutual Aid Houston join us to talk about food supply at local restaurants and grocery stories, as well as how to access help if you need it, including cash assistance.
Plus, Dr. Peter Hotez is here with a COVID update, including how the winter storms may have affected cases and vaccinations.
