Also some people are dealing with busted pipes from the cold.
Hopefully the damage at your residence was minimal. If you're someone that needs to apply for disaster relief with FEMA, the link here can help you out. You should always reach out to your insurance provider first before applying for disaster relief.
I don't know about you, but I don't ever want to see it that cold in Wichita Falls ever again. Last week was a nightmare and I hope to never see it again. I moved to Texas for the heat, not the cold.
