    A large blob appeared on weather radar near the Texas panhandle, but there was no thunderstorm. Those are flying insects, officials say.

    Rangers at a state park near the Texas panhandle say flying insects caused a weather radar to light up as if there was a large storm there Wednesday.

    The interesting radar image came from the area near Copper Breaks State Park, west of Wichita Falls.

    National Weather Service officials say people shouldn't be alarmed by the size of the blob, which spanned for several miles. It wasn't a swarm, they said, rather there were just enough bugs flying around to be seen on the radar.
