Twitchy has told you about the torrential rains and flooding that have left at least one person dead in San Antonio, Texas. Now, on Saturday afternoon, tornadoes are beginning to form in Victoria County, about 120 miles southeast of San Antonio. Residents are beginning to post photos of the twisters, which fortunately appear small at this time.
A tornado is reported to be on the ground in just northeast of Victoria, Texas near Larkspur and Narvarro. Take cover.

If there’s any plus side to the devastation in Moore, Okla., it might be that it will inspire Texans today to take the warnings seriously and seek shelter.
