Saturday’s weather was the best of all week, but so many families are still without essential needs.

Cities and organizations around the Metroplex area came forward to help people in need, as the winter storm is gone, but the aftermath is still being felt.

Carolyn Grey said, "It’s been rough because I am living in someone else's house. I still don't have electricity and I don't have water."

The media reported the impact of this week's weather.

The parking lot at Herman Clark Stadium in Fort Worth was loaded with cars, as thousands of people came forward to get food and water because essentials are hard to find.

Aliesha Lee said, "I've been everywhere, they are empty,"

On Friday and Saturday, the Tarrant Area Food Bank fed more than 6,000 families.

Lee from Arlington drove miles and had to wait in line for three hours.

She said, "At our apartment complex a lot of people have been flooded."

"We didn't have lights and they didn't come back on until Wednesday. Now we don't have water.

"Thank God for the people doing this, I appreciate it," Gene Moody said.

The Tarrant Area Food Bank and many other cities, like Dallas, are doing water and food distributions Sunday as well.
