Texas power outage: locals rescue thousands of cold-stunned sea turtles

Feb 18, 2021 17:12 IST

Residents, some of whom lack heat or basic amenities in their own homes due to the unusually chilly weather, have been rescuing cold-stunned sea turtles and taking them to a convention centre in South Texas.

The Convention Center started pitching in Monday when it's neighbour, Sea Turtle Inc., could no longer handle the number of sea turtles being dropped off, and their mostly outdoor operation had lost power. 

The centre says they've "collected" more than 3,500 sea turtles so far, hesitating to use the word rescued because they know they will end up "losing some."
