Texas National Guard troops are being deployed to help transport elderly residents to shelters after power was knockd out for almost 3 million people amid a record-setting winter storm.

The troops will assist local government agencies in transferring people to 135 cold-weather shelters that have been set up across the second largest U.S. state, Governor Greg Abbott said in a statement on Monday.
