Research Note

In mid-February 2021, an arctic blast knocked out gas, power, and water services across as many as 13 southern states. Texas has borne the brunt of the impact with power outages impacting over five million people and 14.4 million people including loss of access to drinking water. Over the course of the storm event and its aftermath, 1,100 public water supply systems reported weather-related disruptions in Texas, alone.
