Texas Winter Storm Statistics
Texas normally experiences mild winter weather.
According to weather-us, “February is a mild winter month in Texas as the state experiences diverse weather from warm days to cold nights in different regions. The average high temperatures in the state are in the 58°F (14.4°C) to 75°F (23.9°C), while the average low temperatures lie between 26°F (-3.3°C) to 56°F (13.3°C). While Austin, the state capital that lies in South Central Texas, experiences a mild winter with the average temperatures in the 45°F (7.2°C) to 65°F (18.3°C) in February, El Paso in the west has warm days of 63°F (17.2°C) and cold nights that drop to 37°F (2.8°C).”
That said unpredictable weather conditions spurned the Texas winter storm of 2021. A roughly week-long freeze took over Texas, making it unbearable for some homeowners and causing pipe bursts, and worse. It’s inconclusive how many people died in the Texas storm and it will take weeks to determine the dozens of deaths that occurred this February. Some analysts even believe that the winter storm may cost Texas more money than any other disaster in history, this would include Hurricane Harvey.
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Kavon, Neil, and Dylan. The attorneys and legal assistants at Florin Roebig were professional, understanding of our situation, and always kept us updated on what was going on. I would strongly recommend this practice to anyone who finds themselves needing legal assistance.
