Boy killed as Tropical Storm Cindy arrives near Gulf Coast

6-20 Tropical Storm Cindy path 10

Stephen said witnesses reported the boy was standing outside a condominium when he was struck by the log that crashed in on a large wave. The family, from Missouri, was vacationing in the area.

In Gulfport, Mississippi, Kathleen Bertucci said heavy rainfall Wednesday sent about 10 inches of water into her business, Top Shop, which sells and installs granite countertops.

"Wind-wise, tropical storm force wind gusts will start this morning in south central Louisiana, and move into southwest Louisiana and southeast Texas this afternoon", Erickson said.

Tropical Storm Cindy continues to slowly push off to the NW at about 10mph heading for the Louisiana-Texas border. A tropical storm warning has been issued from the coast of Texas through Alabama.

A waterspout came ashore in Biloxi, MS.

Edwards and state officials will hold a press conference at noon Wednesday to discuss the latest on Tropical Storm Cindy.

The storm is expected to make landfall late tonight or early Thursday, according to a 1 p.m. update from the National Hurricane Center.

Spots from Louisiana west to the Florida Panhandle have experienced flooding Wednesday as bands of storms made their way onshore. Cindy is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 6 to 9 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches over southeastern Louisiana, southern MS, southern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle through Thursday. As far east as Gwinnett County, Georgia, the effects from Cindy caused flash flooding. A storm surge between one foot and three feet is expected in the areas with a tropical storm warning.

Tornadoes, too, have been reported in southern Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle. Instead, these are expected to be "brief spin ups" that are 5-15 minutes in duration, though they may damage trees, power lines, and buildings. "We're going to have some flooding", said Meteorologist Ken Graham with the National Weather Service.

Forecasters say the Alabama and MS coasts could be inundated with as much as 15 inches (38 centimeters) of rain from a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico. And the good news is that by the end of the day on Thursday, skies will begin to clear as Cindy moves out of the area.
