As millions of Texans are still without power and water, FEMA is sending in some help.

Many Texans have been without power and water for many days. Pipes have burst, flooding their homes. Children and adults are in the hospital with Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
People are dying. Livestock is dying. People are laughing and I don’t understand what is humorous about any of this.
FEMA will be sending generators, water, and blankets to help Texas. They are also shipping diesel to help because fuel is running out all over the state.
preparing to move diesel into the state to ensure the continued availability of backup power, which of course is a major issue on the ground to key critical infrastructure, including communications, hospitals and water.White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said about FEMA
According to the Houston Chronicle, a Federal Emergency Management Agency spokesperson said the agency has sent 60 “very large” generators to the state to help keep hospitals and other crucial infrastructure online.
