Tropical Storm Cindy makes landfall in southwestern Louisiana

Irune Rengel | 23 Junio, 2017, 09:13

Tropical Storm Warnings were cancelled Thursday morning for Harris, Galveston, Chambers and Liberty counties, the National Weather Service said.

Additional rainfall amounts of 2 to 8 inches over southern MS, southern and central Alabama and western Florida Panhandle are expected through Friday morning as well.

Cindy weakened to a tropical depression as it came onshore in Cameron Parish early Thursday.

The storm put millions under high alert of "life-threatening flash flooding" since Tuesday and already has claimed at least one life. According to CNN, a 10-year-old boy from Fort Morgan, Alabama had died on Wednesday due to getting hit by a log that was carried by a wave.

Parts of southern Alabama, southern MS, southeastern Louisiana and western portions of the Florida Panhandle already have seen streets covered in up to 3 feet of water.

A total of 1 to 3 inches of rain are expected in that region through the weekend, he said.

In between the two rounds of steadier rain, widely scattered thunderstorms could erupt late Friday afternoon and evening, a few of which could turn severe.
