INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Many people in Texas, following the recent cold weather that hit a majority of the country, are in need.

Power has been out for days and now people are waiting in lines to get supplies.

Seven million people in the Lone Star state, a quarter of its population, are under a boil order because low water pressure may have allowed bacteria to enter the water system. A man died at an Abilene health care facility when a lack of water pressure made medical treatment impossible, according to the Associated Press.

More than 100,000 are still without power although that situation is improving daily.

Help for Texas is coming in from all over the country, including Indiana.

The Midwest Food Bank is preparing to send relief to Texas. It says monetary donations are the most efficient way to help.
