Tropical Storm Cindy: Heavy Rain And Potentially Life Threatening Flash Floods

Tropical Storm Cindy churned slowly on Wednesday across the Gulf of Mexico toward an expected landing on the Texas-Louisiana border, after claiming the life of a vacationing child and threatening to bring flash floods from Texas to Florida.

Though the storm has weakened slightly, Cindy is expected to make landfall this evening at Sabine Pass at or near Cameron Parish.

The center of Cindy will approach the coast of southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas late Wednesday and move inland over southeastern Texas or southwestern Louisiana on Thursday, the NHC said.

As the storm comes ashore, the coast could also face winds of up to 50 miles per hour.
