HOUSTON – Ten people have died from hypothermia in Harris County during the winter weather, Judge Lina Hidalgo said Friday.
She added in a tweet that there have been more than 600 cases of carbon monoxide poisioning and that officials are “still counting.”
KPRC 2 is trying to determine this type of data for other areas throughout Southeast Texas and will share the information as it becomes available.
This was a man-made disaster that has cut lives short. We are now reporting 10 hypothermia deaths in Harris County, 600+ carbon monoxide cases, and still counting. When the dust settles, people deserve answers and accountability.— Lina Hidalgo (@LinaHidalgoTX) February 19, 2021
