Texas is seeing the beginning of the unsafe and severe storms forecast to slam parts of the Southeast and Ohio River Valley this weekend.
A large storm system that dumped snow on Colorado and is threatening to make it a soggy weekend for many states to the south and east has drenched parts of Texas and spawned a possible tornado that didn't hurt anyone.
The onslaught will continue until the end of the weekend with areas including Ohio, Pennsylvania and southern NY to northern Florida at risk.
The large storm system also caused flash floods in Louisiana, where two deaths were reported.
The main line of storms will begin to push into this area late Sunday morning and trek to the east in the afternoon. A spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said authorities were in Hamilton and could not be reached for confirmation.
We have an Alert Day due to strong storms later this afternoon and tonight. "We are just a mess", Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell told the outlet. We have a lot of flooding. As always, the First Alert weather Team is watching and providing updates on the weather. The setup for Sunday is certainly an attention getter for a couple waves of severe storms to impact the Commonwealth.
Around 10:05 p.m., storms were about seven miles southeast of Luling and traveling east at around 25 mph.
The storms are expected to move through the Augusta area during the afternoon and evening.
