Given the above ⬆️

 

Boca Chica,

 

They've brought down the upper few meters of Starship Mk-1's nose cone.

 

Perhaps it's also getting control fins & related hardware, or a new cone has been built with them attached?

Cameron County's Office of Emergency Management has sent out a notice alerting residents of Boca Chica Village that SpaceX plans to do some testing on Monday that could possibly break windows at their homes.

According to the alert, SpaceX will conduct flight activities from 4 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. and "there is a risk that a malfunction of the SpaceX vehicle during flight will create an overpressure event that can break windows."
>
Officials are recommending that residents leave their homes at that time during the SpaceX flight activities. They say, "at a minimum, you must exit your home or structure and be outside of any building on your property....to avoid or minimize the risk of injury."
