BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) -- Sections of the roof of a South Padre Island apartment complex collapsed as the edge of Hurricane Dolly reached shore.

The Associated Press reports the extent of the damage wasn't immediately clear Wednesday morning.

Residents told AP they did not believe anybody was injured, but there was no immediate information available from emergency officials.

The causeway linking tourist-popular South Padre Island to the rest of Texas is closed due to Dolly.

A hurricane warning was in effect from Brownsville to Corpus Christi, and in Mexico from Rio San Fernando northward.
