MOSCOW, February 19 – RIA Novosti. The Russian woman told “360” how she helped her grandchildren in the United States to cope with the consequences of the frost that hit Texas.
A woman on the estate of Lilia came to visit relatives in the United States and was delayed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, so she found the cold abnormal for Texas. “The water [from the batteries] was drained on time – the heating system did not freeze. Most do not know that the water had to be drained,” said the Russian woman.
Lilia said that American stores do not sell clothes designed for such severe frosts. But her family was lucky, as they went to the mountains and had the necessary things. In addition, the Russian woman knitted warm sweaters for her grandchildren. “What saved her was that she lived in Russia,” Lillia believes.
Bad weather and snow in Texas and other states have caused a range of problems, including massive power outages, the suspension of refineries and other businesses. Several people died.
