Port Arthur and Mid-County residents could face severe storms Wednesday afternoon.

The Storm Prediction Center of National Weather Service rated the region for a 15 percent chance for severe weather.

Warning Coordination Meteorologist Roger Erickson said the area with the highest risk is in East Texas and central Louisiana, with a smaller threat down along the Interstate-10 corridor of southeast Texas, southwest Louisiana and south central Louisiana.

Large hail and damaging winds are the primary threats, but an isolated tornado is also possible.
