The National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado touched down in a rural area of San Patricio County on Monday.

Tornado warnings and watches were issues for much of the Coastal Bend. Kiii Chief Meteorologist Bill Vessey followed the weather all day and joined us First at Five with the details.
