Hilton to Match Both Cash and Points Donations For Texas Which Was Devastated by Weather

When much of Texas plunged into darkness as a result of the recent massive winter storms which swept through much of the United States and southern Canada — greater than four million people in Texas alone were without electricity, heat, or water due to power outages and other issues — the team at Hilton and the Hilton Effect Foundation wanted to help by matching donations to assist the people of Texas in returning to some semblance of normalcy.

More Updates to Massive Winter Storm Travel Waivers February 2021

Multiple travel alerts continue to be released by many airlines for much of the United States and southern Canada due to massive winter storms which keep sweeping across both countries, which means that simply listing portions of North America which are not undergoing winter weather or inclement weather this week would actually be easier to do.

Almost 75 percent of the United States already has snow or ice which is currently on the ground — which broke a record — and this bizarre weather pattern has affected at least 210 million people in 46 states in the United States and seven provinces in Canada, with at least 32 deaths which have been attributed to the recent winter storms. Greater than four million people in Texas and at least seven other states are already without electricity, heat, or water due to power outages — with no idea as to when electric power, heat, or water will be restored, as many of them have been without those utilities for at least four days.

United Airlines alone has issued travel alerts for at least 51 airports; and American Airlines has issued travel alerts for at least 59 airports, as hundreds of flights have already been canceled this week.

Multiple travel alerts continue to be released by many airlines for much of the United States and southern Canada due to a massive winter storm which is sweeping across both countries, which means that simply listing portions of North America which are not undergoing winter weather or inclement weather this week would actually be easier to do.
