The mayor of a city in Texas has quit after posting that "only the strong will survive and the weak will perish" in a deadly winter storm sweeping the southern US state, APA reports citing BBC.

Tim Boyd, the mayor of Colorado City, took to Facebook in anger at people "crying and looking for a handout".

"Sink or swim it's your choice," he raged. "The city and country... or any other service, owes you nothing."

Millions are now in a third day without power and struggling for heat in Texas.

More than 20 people have died across four southern states.
