Veteran journalist Dan Rather forced to flee Austin home for safety

As thousands remain without power Friday morning amid a boil water notice in Austin, the sun came up and began to melt the ice that was crippling the state of Texas for days. But, with the increase in temperatures comes more bad news: water pipes are unfreezing, causing more issues with hundreds – if not thousands – of homes and businesses in the state's capital. Many residents have been forced to flee their homes, whether it be due to bursting pipes or the continued lack of potable water and power.

Dan Rather: “Many Of Our Fellow Texans Are In Dire Straits”

To all who have expressed concern for my well being in Austin, thank you. But I’m coping and okay. We were told yesterday to evacuate our home due to no power, no heat, no water, and burst water pipes, as well as concerns that even sewage disposal pipes were freezing up and on the verge of bursting. Our longtime home is 8 floors up in a comparatively “low-rise” condominium on the edge of downtown Austin. Even emergency power was out. And that meant no elevators. So after four days of hunkering down and determined to tough it out, we got the order to find a new place to go to immediately. Another deep freeze was descending.
