Tropical Storm Cindy to Push Rains As Far North As Indiana


Tropical Storm Cindy made landfall overnight near the Texas-Louisiana border, causing severe weather along the entire Gulf Coast this morning.

Much of eastern Texas and western Louisiana are being hit with heavy rainfall, according to Accuweather. Minor coastal flooding is expected with a risk of fresh-water flooding in the Deep South as rain had been falling ahead of the storm.

As much as 15 inches of rain is possible along the Gulf Coast, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm will push showers and thunderstorms up into the Ohio River Valley, reaching as far north as southern Indiana, according to the National Weather Service. In central Kentucky, heavy downpours and gusty winds are expected, along with the off chance of an isolated tornado.

“Severe weather is not the main threat with this rainfall event, but a few strong storms with gusty winds and an isolated tornado will be possible Friday afternoon and evening,” the NWS said.
