Many people have been forced to seek shelter from the cold in Texas.

It claims to be the largest energy producer in the United States and one of the largest in the world, but this week millions of its inhabitants were left in the dark.

The arctic cold storm that hits Texas left many of its residents without water and electricity, who had to survive the cold temperatures without having the usual comforts.

The electrical current has been restored little by little, but conditions remain critical in a state not used to these cold waves.

Lack of habit should not translate into lack of preparation, especially in a state with so many sources of energy, experts say.
