Tropical Storm Cindy heads toward land

Francis Olson | 21 June, 2017, 22:56

This moisture will be enhanced by the flow around Cindy.

Alabama Gov. Key Ivey also declared a state of emergency to "guarantee state resources are on standby and are ready to assist impacted communities if necessary". The hurricane season got an early start with Tropical Storm Arlene in April.

Tourists and locals alike are planning to ride out Tropical Storm Cindy.

All airports in Trinidad & Tobago reopened by Tuesday, although public schools and many businesses remain closed. Gusty winds, rip currents, high surf and some coastal flooding will also likely impact the region.

Up to 4 inches of rain fell Tuesday in New Orleans, and an additional 3 to 6 inches were expected over the next 48 hours, followed by weekend thunderstorms, Landrieu said.

A tropical storm warning was in effect from San Luis Pass, Texas, to the Alabama-Florida border.

Cindy formed off the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday.

"I've never feared anyone, since I was 16, fighting as a professional", said Canelo. This is the biggest fight in my career.

Wednesday morning, the storm was centered about 165 miles (265 kilometers) south-southwest of Morgan City, Louisiana, and is moving northwest near 8 mph (13 kph).

From East Texas to southern Mississippi, Cindy is expected to drop 3-6 inches of rain and some isolated areas could see up to 12 inches of rain, the National Weather Service said. More on that can be found below in our "U.S. threat" section.

From the Florida Panhandle to eastern Texas, residents and government officials along the northern Gulf Coast kept an eye on slow-moving Tropical Storm Cindy, which the National Weather Service said posed a threat of "life-threatening flash flooding". The storm has top sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 kph) and is moving toward the northwest at 10 miles per hour (17 kph).

Most of the forecast guidance suggests the area of low pressure associated with Potential Tropical Cyclone Three will track in a north or northwest direction through the Gulf of Mexico early this week.

At times, the heavy rain led to water collecting on some roads and ditches, especially in poor drainage areas.

It should be noted that the majority of the rain will be on the northern and eastern side of the low-pressure system and could affect areas far from its center. "We're not expecting that much rain from this rain, we're expecting eight inches of rain". Rain totals will be between two and six inches with isolated higher amounts possible.

Flash flooding and river flooding are both possible threats.
