Tropical Storm Cindy makes landfall in Louisiana, Texas

Tropical Storm Cindy comes ashore in southwest Louisiana Cindy expected to drench Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia - Northern Michigan's News Leader

In Knoxville, Tennessee, the power-generating Tennessee Valley Authority, said it was drawing down water levels on nine lakes it controls along the Tennessee River and its tributaries in Tennessee, Alabama and Kentucky, anticipating heavy runoff from Cindy's remnants. He did not elaborate.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued a state of emergency Tuesday because of the threat of torrential rains and other severe weather, including risky high tides and rip currents. Weather service flood warnings covered most of the southern two-thirds of the state, with more than 3 inches (75 millimeters) of rainfall having accumulated in some places by midday - and minor flooding expected along some in rivers.

Meteorologist Ryan Rogers says heavy rain early Thursday pushed up projections.

The Somerset area is expected to receive nearly two inches of rain. "This is not just a coastal issue for goodness sake", she said.

Other south MS rivers are also swollen from Cindy's rains, but their crests are forecast to be less severe.

"It's pretty disgusting, but I don't have flood insurance because they took me out of the flood zone", said Bertucci, whose store is near a bayou. He said it appeared one person has been injured but he had no details.

In Alabama, an EF2 tornado damaged buildings in Fairfield, a town outside Birmingham, CNN affiliate WVTM-TV reported. The storm has grown to over 500 miles in radius, with winds as strong as 60 miles per hour near the storm's center.

The U.S. Storm Prediction Center said severe storms pose a lingering threat from the Southeast into western Pennsylvania. "Heavy rainfall is becoming more likely across the region". "This is about inland as well so everybody needs to have heads up and be alert to the rising water".

The Louisiana National Guard dispatched high water vehicles and helicopters into flood-prone areas.

Louisiana's Office of State Parks says high water or damage from Tropical Storm Cindy has closed six parks in southern Louisiana.


And in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, there was another worry in a neighborhood where streets and some homes flooded Thursday.

Water wasn't the only problem.

If you still want sandbags they will be available for Bossier City residents to pick up at the Public Service Complex, 3223 Old Shed Road, until 5 pm today and again tomorrow starting at 8am. A line of severe weather from Tropical Storm Cindy battered this northwest Florida community. Months earlier, following deadly flooding in Texas, residents also reported seeing droves of ants in flooded yards. Last June, torrential rains and flooding claimed 23 lives in West Virginia. This may bring storm total rainfall in excess of 15 inches in some isolated locations.

Tropical Storm Cindy has been downgraded to a tropical depression, but the storm continues to drop massive amounts of rain across the Southeast. At 4 p.m. CDT Thursday, Cindy was about 45 miles (75 kilometers) south of Shreveport.

A turn toward the northeast is expected.

Even parts of the country as far away as the Ohio Valley and the Appalachian Mountains might see rainfall as intense as eight inches. Then into the central Appalachians Friday and Saturday. Flash flooding is expected to begin shortly, according to the NWS statement.

Remnants of the storm are expected to move across the MidSouth late Thursday and through Friday night, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). The storm made landfall early Thursday in southwestern Louisiana.

"I think we're over the hump, but at the same time the threat is still there that one of these bands can form up and get some areas", Graham said by phone Thursday.

The flash flood watch expired Friday morning, but there is still a 90 percent chance of rain.
