Within this past weekend, something drastic has happened to the state of Texas. A horrible snow storm hit Texas and caused many bad things to happen such as, deaths, the destruction of homes, the pollution of water, and many more terrible events. Texas is usually an extremely warm state so the houses were not built for cold conditions and the pipes of Texas are not insulated for cold conditions. These reasons are what led to the destruction of homes, pipes being demolished, and water being polluted. The polluted waters of Texas, the demolition of homes, and the breaking of pipes are leading to many injuries and deaths in the state of Texas.
The damaging of pipes led to an urgent need for help. Plumbers were constantly being called for and there was a lot of work to be done. Some houses actually needed to be re-piped completely or had immense amounts of damage done to them.
This statement shows that the need for plumbers was immense and that some houses had gotten horribly damaged from the winter storm that recently hit Texas. The destruction of pipes in Texas also led to polluted water. The pipes had been busted due to no insulation and the cold destroying them. Millions of residents in Texas woke up around Monday without safe water to drink.
