Tropical Storm Cindy Makes Landfall in SW Louisiana

Swimming is illegal during a double flag warning on the coast, and officials advise residents to play it safe. The boy had severe head injuries from the accident; WKRG-TV reports that the boy's skull was crushed by the log.

Stefkovich issued a warning for drivers to turn around rather than attempt to drive through water-covered spots on roads because of the risk. Some of the low-lying clouds were rotating, and gusty winds whipped across the landscape.

Two tornadoes were reported about four miles northwest of Biloxi, Mississippi. The storm's first fatality was reported on June 21 when a 10-year-old boy was struck by a log that a large wave dislodged as he stood near the shore in Fort Morgan, Alabama, the Baldwin County coroner said. However, they said it's hard to predict precisely what places might get repeatedly hit by bands of heavy rain.

Entergy Corp., the biggest power company in the Gulf Coast area, said about 4,200 of its 2.9 million customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas were without power Thursday morning.

Winds in the Galveston County town of San Leon exceeded 50 miles per hour but were slightly weaker along other parts of the Texas coast southeast of Houston. Life-threatening flash flooding may occur.

The child's father said he noticed the large wave approaching the area where his son was standing and tried to help after the wave came crashing in.

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 rains once the storm moves inland.

A vehicle drives through a partially submerged roadway after Tropical Storm Cindy, now downgraded to Tropical Depression Cindy, in Big Lake, La., Thursday.

As the system gets closer, rain will fall at a steady rate, he said.

They say the floating blobs contain all members of the colony, including worker ants, winged reproductive males and females, and queen ants. "We still think there's a heavy rain potential really through Thursday night and early Friday".

On Thursday, the tropical storm made landfall in Louisiana as it changed its course avoiding Jasper.

Forecasters expect the formation of another El Nino weather pattern that could limit the number of powerful hurricanes and tropical storms that develop in the Atlantic Ocean this year.

NASA's Aqua satellite analyzed Tropical Storm Cindy in infrared light to identify areas of strongest storms and the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM satellite found locations of heaviest rainfall as Cindy was making landfall along the U.S. Gulf Coast states.
