The power is back, but millions of Texans wonder what it will take to fully recover — and who will help them

AUSTIN — The pipes in Marilu Leyva’s trailer looks as though it was damaged by a beast, and it no longer conveys water. The harm to Hussein Kamel’s force washing hardware by the freeze constrained his privately-run company to drop occupations.
