Tropical Storm Cindy Knocks Out Power to Thousands

Storm Team 12: Tracking Tropical Storm Cindy

Storm Team 12: Tracking Tropical Storm Cindy

Up to one inch of rain has fallen in a 30-minute period.

Tropical Storm Cindy earlier in the week brought flooding when it made landfall near the Texas-Louisiana line.

There could be some turbulent weather late Friday morning into the mid-afternoon as Tropical Storm Cindy approaches Middle Tennessee.

"It's normal to have storms in the summer".

As the system gets closer, rain will fall at a steady rate, he said. "It certainly doesn't feel like June, or summer for that matter".

To prepare for possible flooding, Barbourville Mayor David Thompson met with Barbourville Police Chief Winston Tye and Street Department Superintendent Robbie Cobb.

This can cause residents to become trapped in their houses or cars, according to Pritchett. Less than 1,000 people experienced power outages in Louisiana as of early Thursday, the Entergy Louisiana provider said.

"We're certainly not out of the woods", Edwards said during a press conference at the Governor's Office of Homeland Security headquarters in Baton Rouge.

"We just wanted some forward so when the immediate request comes we can move quickly to save lives and get them out of harm's way".

And we have more good news to share with you as the Louisiana Congressman injured in a shooting last week continues to improve. It resulted in consistently gray skies, slow commutes and downed trees.

Flash flood watches remain in effect for All of Kentucky, most of West Virginia and north central and western Tennessee.

WIND: Gusts of tropical storm force in a few squalls are still possible mainly to the east of the depression.

Although flooding is our main concern with this system, there is still the potential for severe weather through Friday. As it moves, low pressure zones will form on its sides that could cause substantial amounts of rain in states such as Florida.

Late Sunday and into Monday, at least an additional half an inch of rain is expected in much of the state. Futurecast indicates that the rain threat will likely end as we head into the afternoon. Graham said flooding is going to hold up for a while where there is a foot of water over some roads and places that typically flood.
