NORIACITAS CREEK. Noriacitas Creek rises seven miles southeast of Bruni in southeastern Webb County (at 27°19' N, 98°51' W) and runs southeast for sixteen miles before joining Mesquite Creek to form Palo Blanco Creek, three miles southeast of Hebbronville in northern Jim Hogg County (at 27°17' N, 98°37' W). The stream was named for Noriacitas, a Spanish land grant made to Simon Ynojosa. The local terrain is flat to gently rolling with local depressions, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support grasses and scrub brush.
