The National Weather Service issued a Tornado Warning for Hays and Blanco counties.  That warning expired at 11am.

The following information comes from
If you are under a tornado warning, seek shelter immediately! Most injuries associated with high winds are from flying debris, so remember to protect your head.If you are in a structure, go to a pre-designated shelter area such as a safe room, basement, storm cellar, or the lowest building level. If there is no basement, go to the center of an interior room on the lowest level (closet, interior hallway) away from corners, windows, doors, and outside walls.If you are in a trailer or mobile home, get out immediately and go to the lowest floor of a sturdy, nearby building or a storm shelter.If you are outside with no shelter, immediately get into a vehicle, buckle your seat belt and try to drive to the closest sturdy shelter. Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You are safer in a low, flat location. Watch out for flying debris. Flying debris from tornadoes causes most fatalities and injuries.

Original story below.

The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for parts of Central Texas until 5 p.m. The counties are Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Travis and Williamson.

Zack Shields says there's not any severe elements to the storms as of right now but that could change the next few hours from Austin to La Grange. Zack says conditions are favorable for some spinning in the storms but that the highest threat for the tornadoes will be just to our south.
The area is also under a Flash Flood Watch until 7 p.m.

You can follow Zack on Twitter here or FOX 7 on Twitter here to get the latest updates. FOX 7 will have team coverage throughout the day.
