Powerful Storm Leaves Over 450,000 Texans Without Power, Claims Eight Lives


TEXAS — Over 450,000 people in Texas are still without power after a powerful storm devastated the state. Reports indicate that more than 200,000 of those affected reside in Dallas.

Both Houston and Dallas were struck by hurricane-force winds on Tuesday, resulting in widespread flooding, uprooted trees, downed power lines, and significant damage to buildings. 

In Magnolia, Texas, the winds collapsed an under-construction home, killing a 16-year-old worker inside, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office. At least eight people have died in the state since severe weather began pummeling the region over Memorial Day weekend.

The storm has left many Texans grappling with power outages and significant damage as recovery efforts continue.
