Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) gave an update on preparations for Tropical Storm Cristobal while his state continues to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Gov. 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 his death are facing criminal charges. Gov. Abbott said Mr. Floyd’s death was a “travesty and is a result of a criminal act.” The governor also expressed concern about the spread of COVID-19 in Texas during protests in response to George Floyd’s death. close
