The winter storm has left millions of Texas residents without electricity and heat for several days.

Across the U.S. there have been at least 47 deaths as a result of the snowstorm, according USA Today, and poor conditions for animals due to the frigid temperatures and lack of infrastructure to resolve the crisis in a swift manner. 

Texas residents are also suffering from a food and water shortage during this state of emergency.

Texas governor Greg Abbott warned residents on Thursday — millions of whom are without clean drinking water and/or power — to brace for the freezing temperatures to continue at least through the weekend, according to the New York Times.

"We are not yet out of this, but we're closer to this challenge being behind us," he said. "We will not stop until normalcy is restored to your lives."
