Spring makes thunderous entrance into region
Spring has made a violent entrance into South Central Texas, and storms that ravaged the area during the overnight hours of March 19-20 have residents talking.
While there have been some calls into the Wilson County News about tornadoes occurring in Karnes County, officials from the National Weather Service have not confirmed any tornadic activity for Karnes or Wilson counties. This is after a tornado warning was in effect for Karnes County from 4:05-4:30 a.m.
Meteorologist Joe Baskin of the Austin-San Antonio National Weather Service Forecast Office in New Braunfels said anyone believing that a tornado touched down in their area should contact the weather service so further investigation can be conducted. Baskin said along with the report, photographs also can be sent, which will prompt a team to come and physically assess damage.
To make a report, call 830-629-0130, ext. 4, or visit http://1.usa.gov/FSlcxh. Information also can be submitted via Facebook.
