Southeast Arkansas Sees Heavy Rain As Cindy Passes Through

Herman Weaver | 28 June, 2017, 04:47

Ivey sent a letter Friday to U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue asking for a disaster declaration in some Alabama counties.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued a state of emergency Tuesday because of the threat of torrential rains and other severe weather, including risky high tides and rip currents. U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin traveled to another community, White Sulphur Springs, for the dedication of a memorial for eight victims there. The weather service had issued tornado warnings earlier for the Birmingham and Tuscaloosa areas. "We have been and are being significantly impacted by effects of Cindy", the governor added.

Meanwhile, flash flood watches and warnings remain in effect across areas of the Southeast as Cindy trudges northeastward.

The storm is expected to create a risk of flooding and isolated tornadoes on Friday.

Emergency crews helped some people from stranded vehicles in Muncie, Indiana, including a almost submerged SUV at a railroad underpass.

Friday's high is expected to be near 87.

Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries John McMillan said Friday that crops of cotton, corn, hay, peanuts and soybeans had been damaged by the storm. No injuries were reported.

Over the coming days, the cold front will push the remnants of the storm east and will help dump more rain over the Tennessee and MS valleys.

Still, the storm barely registered a blip for some in Memphis.

Cindy could drop six to nine inches (15-23 cm) of rain and bring as much as 15 inches to some parts of southeastern Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, the NHC said.

The National Weather Service predicts more rain Friday afternoon and evening from the two systems colliding.

The forecast for the Shoals today calls for showers and a possible thunderstorm with precipitation chances at 90 percent.

Flooding will be a big concern as a frontal system stretches from along coastal sections of the northeast southwestward across the Mid-Atlantic to the Tennessee and Lower Mississippi Valleys and the southern Plains.

Cindy made landfall as a tropical storm, and was downgraded on Thursday. The severe weather front, which was blamed for earlier coastal flooding in the Deep South, tornadoes and one death, is rumbling closer to the densely populated East Coast.

"Everyone will get around an inch (30 millimeters) with the passage of Cindy", meteorologist Maura Casey in Charleston said Thursday. "Any way we can get to them", she said.

Louisiana's Office of State Parks says high water or damage from Tropical Storm Cindy has closed six parks in southern Louisiana.

In southeast Louisiana, affected parks are Tickfaw State Park in Springfield, Grand Isle State Park, Fairview-Riverside State Park in Madisonville, and day use at Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville.

Earl Eues, an emergency official in Terrebonne, said the closing of locks and flood gates began Monday and was being completed Tuesday. "We haven't heard of water getting into homes", said Ashley Buller, an assistant in the parish emergency office.

The National Weather Service on Thursday reported projections the Chickasawhay (CHIK'-a-saw-hay) River at Leakesville would crest at 31 feet (9.5 meters), its highest level there in more than 25 years. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency is staffing its operations centre in Nashville until Saturday to co-ordinate any requests for assistance.

Remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy are continuing to move through the state dumping torrential rainfalls and continuing he flooding threat.

Authorities say the suspected tornado near Birmingham, Alabama, has crumpled businesses and injured one person in the western suburb of Fairfield.
