Local residents have posted videos of a tornado touching down in Erath.

As tornado warnings continue for Vermilion, Lafayette, St. Martin and Iberia parishes, KATC-TV 3's Rob Perillo warns residents to look out for funnel clouds in the aforementioned parishes.

A reminder of the difference between a Tornado Watch and Tornado Warning is that "watch" means tornadic activity is possible based on conditions, where "warning" means that a tornado has actually touched down and a threat is real.

Remember to protect yourself from the threat of tornadoes by getting away from windows and into areas in your home with the most walls surrounding you, preferably away from outer walls of the house.

Please be safe and we will continue to keep you updated!
