SUMMARY: Hurricane Beryl struck Matagorda, Texas, on July 8, 2024, causing widespread damage and leaving millions without power amid soaring temperatures. Despite being a Category 1 storm, the hurricane led to frustration over Houston’s preparedness. President Joe Biden approved a major disaster declaration, and recovery efforts are prioritized towards restoring power. Emergency crews aimed to restore power to an additional 1 million people by the end of the day. The hurricane resulted in at least seven fatalities in the U.S. and 11 in the Caribbean.
