SAN ANTONIO — The South and Central Texas regions were on high alert Monday afternoon and evening as a line of severe storms began sweeping across the area,  

Three Tornado Warnings were issued in the KENS 5 viewing area late in the afternoon in quick succession. 

All three now have expired. They affected Gonzales, Guadalupe and Hays counties.  

As of 9 p.m., the threats had diminished primarily to hail dangers, according to the NWS. KENS 5's Sue Calberg shared footage of hail briefly raining down on the east side shortly before midnight.  

When severe weather threatens the area, it is important to know what risks a storm can bring and what you should do to stay safe. 

One of the most important things to know is where you are located on a map, so when a watch or warning is put into place, you can identify if you are at risk. 

When the National Weather Service puts out warnings, they are county-based and sometimes include cities as well. It is important to know where you live in the county and that you can identify it on a map.
