The National Weather Service in Corpus Christi is allowing tornado warning it issued for central Nueces County to expire.
The warning was issued just before 3 p.m. when a severe thunderstorm was spotted over Robstown. Weather officials said the system was capable of producing a tornado and was moving northwest at 10 mph.
It was allowed to expire minutes later after weather observed noted the system’s rotation had weakened, according to a tweet by the weather service.
Weather officials at one point expected damage to roofs, windows and vehicles and urged those who are outdoors in a mobile home or in a vehicle to move to the closest shelter and to protect themselves from flying debris.
Robstown and North San Pedro were areas that were expected to be impacted.
Tree damage was likely.
“We have not seen anything reach toward the ground yet, but it could happen at any time” reads a weather service post 2:40 pm. “Take shelted if you live between the Corpus Christi airport and Calallen!”
