A tornado watch has now been issued for Cameron County. A tornado touched down in Brownsville - no injuries reported.
Flooding is beginning to take place in Matamoros, Tamulipas, Mexico (across from Brownsville). Drainage in that city is deplorable and has been for the thirty something years I've been coming down here. A good thunder bumper East Texas rain can make it flood - I can only imagine what this continued rain is going to do there.
I'm praying for the folks in the low lying areas - in the Colonias. They have so little to begin with and when this happens it is hard for folks to get back on their feet.
National Guard has arrived - you can see their presence around the county.
