Tropical Storm Cindy Will Dump Heavy Rains Across the Region
Tropical Storm Cindy made landfall in Cameron Parish in southwest Louisiana early this morning and is expected to weaken as it moves farther inland throughout the day.
Check out the Accuweather radar map as Cindy moves further inland.
The Storm Prediction Center has issued a tornado watch valid until 1 p.m. CDT for portions of eastern Louisiana, central and southern Mississippi, southern Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle. This watch area includes New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Jackson, Mississippi, Mobile, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida.
Forecasters now say that the biggest rain threat looks to occur over the western half of the state and northwest and northeast Louisiana.
The rains from Cindy will spread north and east ahead of a cold front Thursday into Friday, which will result in heavy rain and possible flooding from the South to as far north as the Ohio Valley.
