If you’re planning a visit to the beach, watch where you step.

Natural tar balls by the hundreds began washing up at Padre Island National Seashore over the weekend.

They’re black, sticky and are about the size of a quarter.

Where are they coming from and how long will they stick around?

We’ll be asking seashore experts and the full story will be seen this evening on KRIS 6 News.
