CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — If you see a lot of smoke in the direction of the Island tomorrow, don't be alarmed.

That'll be the fire crews performing a controlled burn on both sides of Park Road 22.

The burn initially was planned for Saturday, but weather conditions have led to them move it up to tomorrow. The process will take about four days.

Seashore visitors are being urged not to stop in the roadways near ignition operations. And those with respiratory issues should avoid the area.
