West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice signed a new law on Thursday to coordinate the state's flood mitigation and response efforts with a new state resiliency office.

The Storm Prediction Center said severe weather remains a threat from the Southeast as far as western Pennsylvania as remnants of Cindy push northeastward. But even parts of the Midwest felt the impact of Cindy's passage. We will see a mix of sun and clouds in most areas, and high temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s, with heat index values over 95 degrees late this afternoon.
