Disaster Recovery 2021 (URI)

Winter Storm Uri struck Texas in February 2021. The ultra-low temperatures caused dangerous travel conditions and widespread electricity and water outages throughout the state, impacting residents, homes, businesses, and infrastructure. As a result, the storm was declared a major disaster on February 19, 2021 (DR-4586).

The City of Houston will receive over $50 million to address the impacts of the 2021 Winter Storm and enhance resilience measures.
