NASA's infrared and radar eyes in space cast on Tropical Storm Cindy

Additionally, moisture associated with the remnants of Tropical System Cindy are forecast to interact with the frontal system leading to heavy rain (amounts in excess of 1 inch in 24 hours) for eastern sections of North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina Jun 24-26.

Some threats could be lurking in the flood waters, Alabama state officials warned: Floating colonies of fire ants could form in the gushing surge of water, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System said in a statement. "Additional rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 8 inches over southern MS, southern and central Alabama, and extreme western Florida Panhandle are expected through Friday morning". However, they said it's hard to predict precisely what places might get repeatedly hit by bands of heavy rain.

Be safe driving in those areas this morning and as always, Turn Around Don't Drown.

Cindy weakened to a tropical depression Thursday morning but still brought heavy rain, powerful winds and the threat of floods to the already soaked US Gulf Coast.

Remnants of Tropical Depression Cindy began moving through Tennessee, knocking down trees and causing power outages.

The National Weather Service says it expects heavy rain to spread across West Virginia starting late Thursday and continuing into Saturday.

Tornado watches are in effect for Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida panhandle.

The National Weather Service in Little Rock says the remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy will move into southern Arkansas later Thursday, bringing scattered thunderstorms and some areas of heavy rainfall.

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

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

Entergy Corp, the biggest power company in the Gulf Coast area, said just around 4,200 of its 2.9 million customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas were without power Thursday morning.

Gov. John Bel Edwards wants people to remain vigilant as Tropical Depression Cindy makes its way across the state.

So far, only one death has been reported when a 10-year-old boy was hit in the head by a large log that was pushed on shore by the storm.

As a slow-moving tropical storm that formed Tuesday in the Gulf, Cindy was blamed for one death. "Heavy rain (amounts in excess of 1 inch in 24 hours) is anticipated for parts of the Southern Plains, lower MS and Tennessee Valleys, southeast, and southern Appalachians Jun 24-25".

"It's kind of like a slow-motion disaster for us now", said Greg Flynn with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency.

Stellman, who works in the weather service's Atlanta office, said rainfall is expected to worsen in North Georgia as the weekend creeps closer.
