Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) gave an update on preparations for Tropical Storm Cristobal as his state continued to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Governor Abbott said Texas would take new precautions in the case of an emergency evacuation, which he said could require the use of additional buses and hotels instead of convention centers to allow for social distancing. He also addressed the death of George Floyd, a native Texan who died while in the custody of Minneapolis police officers. All four police officers accused in Mr. Floyd’s death were facing criminal charges. Governor Abbott said Mr. Floyd’s death was a “travesty and is a result of a criminal act.” He also expressed concern about the spread of COVID-19 in Texas during protests in response to Mr. Floyd’s death. close
