Cindy causes minor flooding across South as rain continues

"Regardless it is the rain, if anything we have to watch out for with (Tropical Storm) Cindy", meteorologist Matt Devitt said.

Tropical Storm Cindy pushed ashore along the Louisiana coast Thursday morning, delivering high winds, rough surf and heavy rain.

In Alabama, the weather service said, an EF-2 twister with winds up to 120 miles per hour (190 kph) struck just outside Birmingham Thursday. Downgraded to a tropical depression, Cindy weakened as it crossed Louisiana toward Arkansas but a broad circulation around the system swept moist Gulf air over the South, fueling severe weather and pushing up coastal tides.

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. Harrison County Emergency Management Director Rupert Lacy said there were no injuries but fences, trees and power lines were damaged.

"It's pretty disgusting, but I don't have flood insurance because they took me out of the flood zone", said Bertucci, whose store is near a bayou.

"We haven't heard of water getting into homes", Buller said.
