Texans weathering harsh winter conditions will get some relief from the cold Saturday, although many in the state are still without basic utilities.

Smita Pande in Austin told CNN she lost power to her home early in the week, and she and her husband stayed at a friend's house until water was lost there.

"At this point we're planning on getting water in a week, we have to assume the worst-case scenario," Pande told CNN's Don Lemon in an interview Friday.

With burst pipes and power outages, Austin Mayor Steve Adler told CNN that his city needs water more than any other resource.

When the power grid failed, it impacted the main water treatment plant and the city's reservoir was lost, Adler told CNN's Poppy Harlow.

Many hospitals across the state are strained as well, with no running water, burst pipes, low pressure and boil water notices, according to a statement from Carrie Williams, spokesperson for the Texas Hospital Association.
