SINTON, Texas (AP) - Severe thunderstorms spawned several weak tornadoes in the Corpus Christi area of South Texas, causing minor injuries to three workers at a steel pipe factory construction site.

One tornado touched down briefly Friday at the TPCO America Corp. pipe plant being built in Gregory, about 12 miles northeast of Corpus Christi. San Patricio County Emergency Manager William Zagorski says the wind flipped over a temporary tool shed and caused minor injuries to three workers who declined a trip to a hospital.

There were widespread reports of large broken tree limbs. Winds blew the roof from a barn near Bishop, about 30 miles southwest of Corpus Christi.
