A tornado watch is in effect for parts of Southeast Texas, including the Harris County area until 1 p.m. Tuesday, the NWS said.

Strong to severe thunderstorms began moving into Southeast Texas Tuesday morning and are expected to push eastward through the afternoon.

Residents are advised to be aware of the possibility of isolated tornadoes, damaging winds, small hail and localized flooding.

If you are in an area with a Tornado Warning you should take cover in an interior room, on the lowest floor of a sturdy building and avoid windows. If you are outdoors, in a mobile home, or in a vehicle, you should move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris, the NWS said.

The NWS advises motorists to not take shelter under highway overpasses. If you are unable to safely drive away from the tornado, as a last resort, either park your vehicle and stay put, or abandon your vehicle and lie down in a low lying area and protect yourself from flying debris.
