FLORESVILLE -- The Wilson County News has received unconfirmed reports of a possible tornado or straight-line winds just after midday, causing damage to Pruski’s Feed in Kosciusko.

Southbound traffic on S.H. 123 near Kosciusko also was blocked, due to a fallen tree, according to reports around 2 p.m.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Floresville office, F.M. 536 at the Wilson and Atascosa county line was closed at Atascosa County’s request earlier today. TxDOT crews also were monitoring water over the road at several locations, including:

•F.M. 537 1 mile from F.M. 1922

•F.M. 536 at Martinez Lane

•F.M. 536 at C.R. 146.

Hail was reported in the Dewees area.

Travelers and area residents are urged to use caution as severe thunderstorms continue to move through the area. Tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings continue to be in effect in across the area.

Remember to “turn around, don’t drown,” at low-water crossings or anywhere water is running across the roadway.

Road closures and reports of damage can be posted here as they are received.
