DALLAS, February 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A WFAA-TV news team at dallas starring the founder of Fears Nachawati Majed Nachawati in a report exploring the human toll of the 2021 winter storm power outage in Texas and the ongoing legal ramifications for those responsible.
“When you combine irresponsibility at the government level with deregulation gone wrong, bad things happen,” Nachawati told the WFAA reporter. Jobin Panic.
the February 16 report explored the tragic loss of life that occurred when woefully unprepared electricity providers and the electrical grid operated by the Electric Reliability Board of Texas experienced a catastrophic outage despite numerous weather forecast warnings. The widespread loss of power during prolonged subfreezing conditions has placed residents across the state in a life-and-death struggle for survival. According to published information, the estimated death toll has reached more than 700, far higher than the official figures.
Garland Resident Alan Brokelman told the WFAA how his mother, Kimberly Smith, died after the home they shared lost power for 40 hours. Ms Smith, who was paralyzed with limited use of her hands, leaned on an electric medical bed to sit up and change positions. Mr Brockelman said he was desperately trying to keep his mum warm and felt betrayed by electricity providers who ‘put the profit on people’ by not preparing.
Concerns that lawyers in the Nachawati trial played a leading role in the lawsuits seeking justice for those injured and killed during the storm, as well as for businesses and individuals who suffered property damage.
