US NEWS

The frost death toll from the February Texas winter storm and power outages has reached 111, nearly double the original estimate.

According to the Texas Department of Health, the majority of deaths are due to hypothermia.

The storm left more than 4 million customers in Texas without electricity. This is one of the most massive power outages in US history.

Many homes were also left without drinking water for days when the Texas power grid went out of service amid severe frosts and record heating demand.

Earlier this month, Texas officials said there were 57 deaths.
