According to Newsweek a Texas judge says Texans shouldn’t necessarily be worried about what they need for their selves, but more what you may need for your pets. Kirk County judge Rob Kelly issued a disaster declaration on 4 March and said that the increase of visitors could drain, not only our food and fuel supplies could strain our city and county in fraction to quite possibly over capacity.
