Cameron County partially reopens beaches

Authorities have partially reopened Cameron County's beaches on Wednesday morning now that weather conditions have calmed down.

Rising tides and the threat of severe weather prompted Cameron County officials to shut down all of their beaches on Tuesday.

Officials shut down Boca Chica Beach on the mainland as well as Isla Blanca Park, Beach Access 5 and Beach Access 6 on South Padre Island.

Cameron County officials reopened those beaches on Wednesday morning but asked the public to heed tide and wind conditions.

But officials shut down Boca Chica Beach and Beach Access 5 on South Padre Island again around 11 a.m. Wednesday due to dangerous conditions.
