Tropical Storm Cindy could bring more rain to the Ohio Valley

Posted June 23, 2017

"Some of the projections and possible rainfall totals are the highest we've seen since the 2016 August flooding". The potential is higher close to the coast but could affect the entire state given the scope of the weakly organized but large storm system. The system is moving toward the northwest near 9 miles per hour (15 km/h), and this general motion should continue through Wednesday, with a turn toward the north expected Wednesday night or Thursday.

University of Southern Mississippi officials are continuing to monitor Tropical Storm Cindy, which now is expected to make landfall either late Wednesday or early Thursday in southwest Louisiana and east Texas.

If PTC 3 does become a tropical storm, residents in the affected areas can expect street flooding and some homes could also be vulnerable.

The speech was reset for Wednesday, June 21, but because of the heavy rains and flash flooding that's expected, he has postponed it again.

The storm's eye was about 125 miles southeast of Trinidad.

A tropical storm warning was in effect from San Luis Pass, Texas, to the Alabama-Florida line. The tornado risk will expand to the I-10 corridor to the coast for all of southwest and south central Louisiana on Wednesday.

The tropical storm warning means tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere in the warning area in the next 24 to 36 hours. Should it strengthen into a tropical storm, it would be the third named storm of the season - Cindy.

Cindy was expected to produce 6 to 9 inches (15 to 23 cm) of rain over southeastern Louisiana, southern MS, southern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle through Thursday, the NHC said.

Cities that could experience flooding problems from the storm include Tallahassee, Florida; Mobile, Alabama; Biloxi, Mississippi; and New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lake Charles, Louisiana.

The "potential tropical cyclone" designation is given to storms that have not yet formed into a typical tropical depression or storm but may form and impact land.

"The system could be classified as a tropical or subtropical cyclone later today", the NHC said. The rest of the company's operations, including deliveries from its Clovelly, Louisiana, hub, were expected to continue, according to the company's website.

Tropical Storm Cindy formed on Tuesday afternoon, continuing an active start to hurricane season.
