Texas officials warn of price gouging amid water shortages

TEXAS –  The massive power and water outages across the state of Texas have led to hundreds of complaints from Harris County residents regarding excessive price gouging for costs for gas, water, and urgent hotel bookings, officials said.

Price gouging during a declared emergency is illegal. Officials are warning residents to report any encounters with excessive prices during this disaster to readyharris.org or text 346-354-7459. Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo says violators can face fines of up to $250K.
