Latest news on Texas, a state located in the South Central region of the United States. Its capital is Austin, and its largest city is Houston.
Texas shares its borders with Louisiana to the east, Arkansas to the northeast, Oklahoma to the north, New Mexico to the west, and the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas to the south and southwest. It also shares a coastline with the Gulf of Mexico to the southeast.
The state has a population of 30 million people and covers an area of 268,596 square miles (695,660 square kilometres), making it the second-largest US state by both area and population.
Texas is nicknamed the Lone Star State for its former status as an independent republic, and as a reminder of the state's struggle for independence from Mexico.
