LAKE BUCHANAN, Texas (KXAN) — As storms were rolling through the Hill Country on Tuesday morning, KXAN viewer Gage Watson sent a ReportIt video of what appears to be a tornado on Lake Buchanan.

Watson said he was on the lake fishing with his dad when they spotted the formation. “The rain just started coming down as we we were putting out our fishing poles,” said Watson. As the spout formed, Watson and his dad pulled their boat up to a bank and waited for the storm to pass.

KXAN’s First Warning Weather Team tracked the storm as it moved through the area around 7:30 a.m.


After the storm passed, the father and son team went back to fishing as normal.

As the threat for severe weather continues over the next 24 hours, make sure you have the KXAN Weather App on your phone so you know where the storms are headed. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
