SOUTH PADRE ISLAND - Cameron County officials closed several beach accesses due to Tropical Storm Karen.
The storm is expected to make landfall this weekend near the Florida panhandle. Still, it is expected to kick up high waves and cause dangerous riptides along the Texas coast.
County officials closed beach accesses 5 and 6 and Boca Chica Beach.
