Cindy weakens but still stirs weather over wide swath

Weather forecasters are expecting a third day of rough weather for Gulf Coast states thanks to Tropical Storm Cindy.

Baldwin County Sheriff's Capt. Stephen Arthur said witnesses reported the 10-year-old boy from Missouri was standing outside a condominium in Fort Morgan when the log, carried in by a large wave, struck him.

After looming off the Gulf Coast for the last few days, Tropical Storm Cindy made landfall early Thursday morning along the Texas/Louisiana border.

Previous report: As the potential tropical storm likely to be named Cindy approaches the Texas-Louisiana coasts, forecasters are closer to determining the storm potential impact.

According to the National Weather Service's latest advisory, the storm is expected to dump a total of 3 to 6 inches of rain, with as much as 12 inches in isolated spots, over eastern Texas and western and central Louisiana, as well as southern and eastern Arkansas through Friday morning.

Slow-moving Cindy had formed as a tropical storm on Tuesday in the Gulf, causing widespread coastal highway and street flooding, and several short-lived tornadoes in the Gulf States.

Heavy rain and the risk of flooding directly associated with the storm are forecast to extend well inland over the South into this weekend.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says two boat launches at Pointe-aux-Chenes (point oh SHEN) Wildlife Management Area near Houma (HOH-much) are closed because of flooding. The city could see 1 - 2 inches of additional rain with 3 inches possible in the east side of the city, according to NWS.

Before the storm made landfall on Thursday, one person had already died from injuries related to its winds. A boy killed by debris in storm surf off Alabama was the only fatality reported so far in the storm, which spun off tornadoes and caused street flooding in many coastal areas.

"Floating colonies can look like ribbons, streamers or a ball of ants floating on the water", the warning adds.
