Large winter storm hits US

A large winter storm has hit the US.

The storm has brought freezing winds, ice and snow to parts of the US which rarely see such cold weather.

Storm Uri has swept across Texas as well as other southern US states.

More than 150 million Americans were now under winter storm warnings and it reported on Tuesday that around 73% of the US is covered by snow.

Texas is experiencing some of its coldest temperatures in 30 years. the temperature dropped to -18C on Sunday.

A state of emergency has been declared by President Joe Biden. This means local emergency services will get more support to help those affected.

Homes in Texas are not normally insulated for cold weather, which has meant there has been a much higher demand for electricity.

Some schools and food stores have had to close, and people are being advised to stay at home and avoid travel.

At least 20 people have died because of the storm.
