CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

It's what the entire Texas Coast is talking about, red rain? Many of you woke up to a dirty surprise on your cars and trucks.

Our newsroom was busy today with several calls, and facebook posts from people all over South Texas asking about the mysterious dust that fell from the sky with Saturday night's rain drops.

A lot of people said there was a smoke smell in the air as well. It made for some pretty long lines at car washes across town.

We caught up with some residents who were trying to clean it off their vehicles. We received pictures of the rare occurrence from the Corpus Christi area, Alice, Beeville, everywhere in between, and all the way up to Houston.

Turns out the red dirt came from a dust storm in Mexico, and ended up on all of our cars.
